Listen to Nakhane’s New Album ‘You Will Not Die’

Nakhane's sophomore album is here.

South African musician Nakhane just released his sophomore album, You Will Not Die, a follow-up to Christopher (2014).

You Will Not Die features the singles "Clairvoyant," "Interloper," and "Presbyteria," which were released prior to You Will Not Die.

His 2014 song "Fog," takes on a different texture, as he plays it with keys instead of an acoustic guitar. It feels warmer and more somber with keys.

You Will Not Die features varied production that revolves between electro, soul and folk. And it excels in blending all those different sounds and the man's multidimensional voice into a monolithic project that defies any form of traditional classification.

You'll find yourself dancing to songs like "Clairvoyant," "Interloper," "Star Red," but most of the album consists of mellow tunes for your headphones.
