Tinariwen's 'Inside / Outside: Joshua Tree Acoustic Sessions' EP

Download the lead single off Tinariwen's upcoming 'Inside / Outside: Joshua Tree Acoustic Sessions' EP

During the recording of this year's Emmaar LP in California's Joshua Tree desert, Tinariwen would stay up and jam around a campfire outside their studio well into the night. Inside / Outside: Joshua Tree Acoustic Sessions EP, the fruit of those moonlit improvisations, will feature 5 stripped-down, transcendental new hymns in the hypnotic style of the Northern Malian desert blues outfit. Watch a video trailer for the EP and grab "Iljaych Tareq," the lead single off the release below (via Aquarium Drunkard). Inside / Outside: Joshua Tree Acoustic Sessions will be out October 7 from Anti-. Catch Tinariwen live on their North American fall dates listed below.
