Bombino

Tuareg guitarist Bombino's last album was 2013's Dan Auerbach-produced Nomad on Nonesuch, and for its followup he's got a different rock producer and label. This time he worked with Dirty Projectors frontman Dave Longstreth, and the album, titled Azel, will be out April 1 via Partisan. The first single is "Inar," which you can watch the video (by Ron Wyman) for below.

Bombino's also touring this year, including a performance at Africa Now! at NYC's historic Apollo Theater on March 26. In addition to Bombino, the show features Jojo Abot, Alsarah and the Nubatones and the US premiere of Mokoomba. Tickets are on sale now.
