Young Fathers 'Get Up'

Listen to the latest song from Young Fathers 'Get Up,' off the upcoming 'Dead' LP.


While we await the forthcoming debut LP from site favorites Young Fathers, the Scottish/ Liberian/ Nigerian trio have unleashed a new taste off Dead. After finishing off '13 with one of our top songs and top videos, YF kick the new year off with a jolt of sunshine that has us salivating even harder for their proper introduction. "Get Up" is party-atmosphere caffeine for all revolutionaries in the house. Listen to the track below and look for DEAD out Feb 4 via Anticon/Big Dada. The band will be heading out on a European tour next month. For more from Young Fathers catch up on their African In Your Earbuds #38 mixtape.
