Songhoy Blues Announce the release of new EP, and Camden Roundhouse show!

Having already had a hugely successful 2015, including a recent nomination in the ‘Best New Band’ category at this year’s Q Awards, Songhoy Blues go into the end of the year by announcing their biggest UK headline show to date and a deluxe version of their much-acclaimed debut album, 'Music In Exile'.

Having made their first appearance in London in July 2014 at the Servants Jazz Quarters, the band play The Roundhouse in London on Saturday 21st May 2016 – a staggering ascent for any band. The show billed as ‘Songhoy Blues presents ‘Music in Exile’ - a celebration of music from Mali and beyond’, also features a performance from special guest FATOUMATA DIAWARA. Further live guests and DJs will be announced

Tickets for the show go on sale at 9am on Friday October 2nd 2015  via www.seetickets.com & www.roundhouse.org.uk priced at £17.50

We're also thrilled to announce a deluxe version of their incredible debut, which will be released Friday November 6th 2015. The deluxe edition, released on CD and download, features 3 new tracks: staggering re-interpretations of tracks by some of the group’s key influences.

A re-versioning of the Clash’s 'Should I Stay Or Should I Go' features new lyrics addressing the difficult decision confronting refugees around the world - a literal “Should I Stay?” and suffer persecution at home or “Should I Go?” and face potential social injustice and prejudice - an extremely powerful addition to what is already a vital release.

An extraordinary re-working of Led Zeppelin’s Kashmir, fully endorsed by Jimmy Page after initially gracing the cover of Mojo Magazine, and a stunning version of Manu Dibango’s classic Soul Makossa, which might be the band’s greatest musical performance to date, also feature on the deluxe edition.

The 3 extra tracks featured on the deluxe album will also be available on the same day as a stand-alone 12” titled Re-Covered.
