Ethiopian-American pop singer and producer Kenna, best known for his '07 hit "Say Goodbye To Love," is back with the first of a three-part EP series entitled The Land To Air Chronicles. The first of this series, Land 2 Air I : Chaos and The Darkness, out today, is said to be the darkest of the three EPs, revealing Kenna's personal struggles against the constraints that prevent us from fully realizing our dreams. All three EPs will lead up to his next studio album Songs For Flight, due out in 2012. Apparently much of the inspiration for this album came from Kenna's experience climbing to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro in 2010 as part of Summit on the Summit, his philanthropic project to raise awareness about the clean water global crisis. Check out the first single from Chaos and The Darkness below, "Chains," featuing Shimmy Hoffa (better known as Chad Hugo from The Neptunes) and co-written by Paul Banks of Interpol.
