Young Fathers performed a stripped-down version of “Only Child” for Okayafrica TV before their recent show in Brooklyn. ‘G’ Hastings, Alloysious Massaquoi and Kayus Bankole were filmed at an empty Music Hall of Williamsburg as they ran through a chilling, a cappella rendition of the track, a highlight from their 2013 mixtape Tape Two.
Young Fathers are currently on tour across the globe in support of their latest album White Men Are Black Men Too (Big Dada), the follow-up to their 2014 Mercury Prize-winning album Dead. They’re set to perform at some of Europe’s biggest festivals including Glastonbury, and then return to North America this summer for a show at Central Park SummerStage, and for a performance at the Osheaga Festival in Montreal.
