Kano Releases Sixth Studio Album 'Hoodies All Summer'
Today sees the release of Kano's 6th studio album HOODIES ALL SUMMER via Parlophone/Atlantic Records which is now available for download/streaming.
Kano has also recently introduced a new video for one of the album tracks, "Pan-Fried" ft Kojo Funds. Shot last week in East London and directed by Taichi Kimura, the video perfectly illustrates "Pan-Fried" - a song about celebration despite dire circumstance - and the warmth and positivity of the community it represents. The track contrasts summery beats with a furious, dark undertow and features a guest turn from the rapidly ascendant British artist Kojo Funds.
HOODIES ALL SUMMER is the sixth studio album from Kano, and his first release since 2016's acclaimed Mercury-nominated 'Made In The Manor'. Produced by Blue May and Jodi Milliner, the 10-track album sees Kano explore a more minimal - yet still uniquely British - sound which brings his lyrical prowess to the fore.
This autumn will also see Kano make his much-anticipated return to the stage, accompanied by a full live band, with a head line tour kicking off in Glasgow on 2nd October, ahead of a sold-out hometown show at London's iconic Royal Albert Hall on 7th October.
