Femi Kuti 'The World Is Changing'

Femi Kuti's "The World Is Changing" reimagines his afrobeat legacy in his upcoming No Place For My Dreams LP. Watch the video for the new Femi Kuti music.


Femi Kuti aims to reimagine his afrobeat legacy in his upcoming album No Place For My Dream. "I knew I never wanted to be just like my father," he exclaims in a press release, "I was being groomed to be like my father, even in the way I dressed. That wasn't what I wanted. I needed something more challenging. I wanted to break away." In "The World Is Changing," the first single off the upcoming LP, Femi strikes a balance between father Fela's socio-political outspokenness and his own sonic vision. Watch the collage/lyric video for the single below and look out for No Place For My Dream dropping June 25 from Knitting Factory Records. For more, read our recent interview with Femi.
