Sauti Sol announces album date

Sauti Sol has announced that their fifth studio album, MIDNIGHT TRAIN, will be released on 5th JUNE 2020.

The album pre-add goes live today! Pre-add is an Apple Music feature that allows subscribers to receive and listen to tracks immediately they drop, as they anticipate the whole album.

Sauti Sol fans will instantly get the tracks, “Brighter Days” as well as previous singles “Suzanna” and “Disco Matanga,” added to their libraries and playlists immediately. Additionally, this feature will automatically add the album to the consumers library immediately on release day, 5 June 2020.

Recorded between Los Angeles, California, Johannesburg, South Africa and hometown Nairobi, Kenya, MIDNIGHT TRAIN demonstrates the bands songwriting and producing skills with electric energy and new rhythms. The album’s theme is centered around enjoying the journey of life but also embracing the hustles and the trials that come with it.

Special and notable features on the album include American singer and songwriter, India Arie on sensual track “My Everything,” and Burna Boy guest appears on “Time Flies.” “Disco Matanga (Yambakhana),” the official soundtrack to Netflix’s first African Original series Queen Sono, is the most recent collaborative release to come in the form of Sho Madjozi and Black Motion.
