Okayplayer Video: Michael Kiwanuka 'I'll Get Along'

[embed width="600"][/embed]


UK via Uganda soul singer Michael Kiwanuka has been killing it lately, winning mad BBC awards, collaborating with the Black Keys and just generally gwaan like a gentle-voiced, guitar-strumming G. This latest video is no exception, capturing Kiwanuka at his wistful, brilliant best. “I'll Get Along" is a sunny/cloudy composition of guitar, flute and subtle drums that showcases unique MK's vocal power and songwriting on par with Bill Withers or Jimmy Cliff from his “Sitting In Limbo" days. The video is pretty dope, too. Looks like Kiwanuka filmed it in America (all of it) and then instagrammed it to himself. This is off his acclaimed LP Home Again, which is out now. Purchase it here.
