Love and Hate live on KCRW


UK soul singer Michael Kiwanuka took some time after the release of his acclaimed debut to figure out what he really wanted to say next. He partnered with producer Danger Mouse to bring to create Love and Hate and you can hear his growth as an artist as he explores his heritage and issues like race and spirituality.  I know from first listen, that Love and Hate is a track that I would return to each day.  The potency of Michael Kiwanuka’s vocal on this track is mesmerizing- a cross-cultural transcendent groove for 2020 and beyond.
