Nubya Garcia announces new album ‘Source,’ shares 12-minute title track
Modern-day UK jazz great Nubya Garcia recently released her stunning new single "Pace," and now she has announced a new album, Source, due August 21 via Concord Jazz. Nubya produced it with Kwes (Solange, Kelela) and along with the album announcement comes the 12-minute title track, which features Ms Maurice, Cassie Kinoshi, and Richie Seivwright.
The new track finds Nubya continuing to expand her sonic palette, incorporating bits of reggae, psychedelic soul, '70s fusion, '60s free jazz, and more into the lengthy, hypnotic, ever-evolving song. Listen and watch the trippy visualizer below.
The album also features contributions from Akenya, La Perla, Daniel Casimir, Barrell Jones, Joe Armon-Jones (Ezra Collective), and Cassie Kinoshi (SEED Ensemble). Full tracklist below too.
