Seun Kuti - the youngest son of late music legend, Fela Kuti and head of the Egypt 80 band has set a date to release his album titled, Black Times.
The album features living legend and 10-time Grammy winner, Carlos Santana and Grammy winner and Emmy nominee, Robert Glasper.
Speaking about the album in a press release, Seun said:
"Black Times is a true reflection of my political and social beliefs. It is an album for anybody who believes in change and understands the duty we have to rise up and come together.
"The elites always try to divide the working class and the poor people of the world. The same oppression felt by workers in Flint, Michigan is felt by workers in Lagos and Johannesburg.
"We are all capable of change, us iron people, us workers. Black Times is the sound of the people and a weapon of the future. The big picture needs more colour."
The 8-track album will be released March 2, 2018.
