Having previously spent the last few years in collaboration with Leon Brdiges, Khruangbin have now teamed up with Vieux Farka Touré for a very special full-length release.
The new album 'Ali' was written in honour of Vieux’s late father, Ali Farka Touré, is being previewed by the new lead single 'Savanne', and is set to be released on the 23rd September via Dead Oceans.
Speaking about the collaboration, Vieux said, “I want this album to convey love. It is about the love that Ali brought into the world. It is about the love that I have for him and that Khruangbin has for his music. It is about pouring your love into something old to make it new again.”
While Khruangbin added, “We made this album to honor Ali's life and body of work. We hope this collaboration enlightens more people to Ali's musical legacy."
