Tony Allen

Offering an exciting sneak preview of Film of Life, the new album from Tony Allen due for release next October on Jazz Village, the poignant ballad “Go Back” was written with Damon Albarn, who features on vocals and keyboards.

Set to a sensual and hypnotic beat, the two musicians have created a homage to the African refugees who ended up on the Italian island of Lampedusa. This is a dazzling new masterpiece to add to the collective adventures of the brilliant English jack-of-all-trades and the cult Nigerian drummer, whose paths first crossed over ten years ago for the album Homecooking, followed by The Good, the Bad and the Queen, Rocket Juice and The Moon and Africa Express.
