Sinkane had been testing out new material back in the spring and now we can hear the results: Life and Livin' It is out February 10 via City Slang. (Their last two LPs were on DFA in North America.) Main man Ahmed Gallab and his band made the album in El Paso, TX with an aim at being social conscious and joyous at the same time. "I would listen to my favorite records, like Funkadelic's 'America Eats Its Young,' and realize how great they made me feel," says Gallab. "That carefree, light and fun feeling I was getting while writing this record is what I want everyone to feel when they listen to it."

You can check out the video for first single,  "U'Huh," which was shot at Brooklyn's Union Pool (where those residency shows happened) and directed by Nick Bentgen:

Sinkane will also head out on tour to promote the new album in early 2017, including a stop in NYC at the Bowery Ballroom on February 17. Tickets for that are on AmEx presale now and go on sale to the general public Friday, Novmeber 18.
