Sinkane Releases New Track “New Name”

Sinkane Releases New Track 'New Name' from his forthcoming albun 'New Love' Out September 2nd on DFA and City Slang, Sinkane starts his tour 9/4 in Berlin

In anticipation of the September release of Mean Love, Sinkane has today released another track from the record, “New Name,” which saw its premiere today.

The new track is the latest offering from Mean Love, a complex record that unites rhythm and styles from all over the world with funky basslines, deep groove, West African slow-burners and many more influences coming together to form a cohesive sound. From Gallab’s childhood in Sudan there is a pan-African influence of popular Sudanese music and haqibah, as well as distinct horn and synth arrangements more common to East Africa. This background merges with the lessons learned from Ahmed’s touring stints with Caribou, Yeasayer and of Montreal, and especially the monumental task he underwent as musical director for ‘ATOMIC BOMB! The Music of William Onyeabor,’ a collaboration that brought on David Byrne, Damon Albarn, The Lijadu Sisters, Money Mark, Blood Orange, and members of Hot Chip, LCD Soundsystem, The Rapture and more. Mean Love speaks to Gallab’s uncanny ability to embrace and assemble a huge history as pure and generous modern-musical expressions, and arrives on September 2nd via DFA Records and City Slang worldwide.
