Song of the Day: Michael Kiwanuka – Home Again


Not just content with dominating the female singers category in the music world (see: Florence and Adele), the music factory that is Great Britain has decided to start taking aim at the vaunted American male singer-songwriter industry (see: Jack Johnson, John Mayer). First up to the plate is singer Michael Kiwanuka.

Already named the winner of the BBC’s Sound of 2012, the British singer songwriter isn’t quite like his contemporary American counterparts (who are surely produced in a factory somewhere that is co-owned by Starbucks and American Eagle). Rather, Kiwanuka brings forth a more earnest almost retro soul (cue: hype word) sound to his music. He recently released a new EP, entitled Home Again and this is the lead track off of it.

With his gentle voice and simple sound, this seems like a great track to put on while sitting near a fireplace, sipping spiked hot chocolate and reading a big book. Check it out.
