Afrobeat legend Tony Allen sadly passed away earlier this week at age 79, and as a tribute to him, Damon Albarn (who Tony played with in The Good The Bad and The Queen) released a song that he and Allen recorded with Skepta shortly before quarantine began. As Pitchfork points out, a press release states, "The track was written and recorded with Skepta in London just before lockdown and is being shared immediately as a tribute to the spirit of a great man, Tony Allen."
