Nubiyan Twist announces a new album “Freedom Fables” with a new single “Tittle Tattle” featuring super talented young vocalist Cherise Adams-Burnett. The Leeds / London collective is effortlessly fusing on that track different genres like soul, jazz, hip hop, highlife, or broken beat with great musicianship and lyrics.
“Freedom Fables” is set to catapult Nubiyan Twist even further into the limelight and cement their position as one of the UK's leading soulful collectives of the current generation. It’s the follow-up to the acclaimed "Jungle Run" from Spring 2019. The album will feature some great guests: Cherise, Soweto Kinch, Pat Thomas, Ria Moran, K.O.G. and Ego Ella May, who sang on previous brilliant single "24/7".
Watch below a video to Nubiyan Twist new song “Tittle Tattle”, the new single from their forthcoming sophomore album “Freedom Fables”:
The band was formed in 2011 at the Leeds College of Music by a group of players around Tom Excell. They spent four years woodshedding, shifting personnel, and playing whatever gigs were available just as the 21st century cross-hybrid music scene was coming into view. Their 2015 self-titled full-length debut album on Wormfood received strong support from the jazz and hip-hop press, and earned them support gigs with De La Soul, Hot 8 Brass Band, Quantic, and the Robert Glasper Experiment.
"Freedom Fables reflects on the power of narratives. Each vocalist on this record explores their own memoirs, a freedom of expression underpinning our belief that music is the ultimate narrative for unity. The record references a lot of music that we all loved during our formative years; you can hear touches of broken beat, blunted hip hop, highlife, Latin, jazz and UK soul running through the tracks", explains Tom Excell.
