Legendary Afrobeat Drummer Tony Allen Hooks Up With Damon Albarn To “Go Back”

albarn-tonyLegendary drummer Tony Allen has shared “Go Back”, a new song that features vocals and keyboards from Damon Albarn . The track is taken from Allen’s forthcoming new album called Film of Life, which is out in October via Jazz Village. Below, you can listen to the song and watch a short teaser for the album.  Besides featuring on vocals and keys, Albarn is credited as co-writing the song, which, according to a description from Allen’s youtube channel, is an “homage to the African refugees who ended up on the Italian island of Lampedusa.” 

Previously, Allen and Albarn were members of the Good, The Bad, & The Queen and Rocket Juice & the Moon, and collaborated on Allen’s Home Cooking and Albarn’s Africa Express project.
