Songhoy Blues make triumphant return with new single Worry

One of the most successful and exciting bands to emerge from Africa in recent years, Songhoy Blues have today shared an exhilarating and inspiring new track, Worry.

The track was produced by Matt Sweeney, who worked with the band on their Meet Me In The City EP last year.

Speaking of the track, the band said:

"The harshness of life still weighs on our societies and sinks many young people into a dead end. Worry is a positive energy that Songhoy Blues want(s) to be a ray of hope for humanity. Worry is about not stopping fighting because at the very end you will find the light."

The track is also accompanied by a fantastic performance filmed last month in Bamako by Malian director Fansé Sanogo, based on an original concept by the band.

Songhoy Blues were determined to release Worry during these tumultuous times because the message it sends is both relevant and universal, and a beacon of hope to people struggling everywhere. It is also their first song entirely in English, but propelled by the Malian polyrhythms and potent blues riffs that set them apart from all other bands. On beat with the current times, the track is the first glimpse of their rockier, harder, hopeful third album. "Keep Fighting Today," they extol. A determined treatise for a better life.
