Angelique Kidjo

Remain In Light (Talking Heads cover album)



Released: 12th Oct 2018



Released: 14th Dec 2018


kidjo’s euphoric and passionate interpretation of talking heads’ classic album is a soaring union between afrobeat and exemplary pop songwriting.

The album features appearances by Alicia Keys, Questlove of The Roots, Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend, Blood Orange, Tony Allen, Angelique’s long-time guitarist Dominic James, and Magatte Sow (percussionist for the ‘Black Panther’ film score). “Inspired by its Afrobeat underpinnings, the Beninese singer tackles an album-length cover of the Talking Heads’ 1980 landmark, in the process unearthing hidden rhythmic and emotional nuances” 7.7 – pitchfork.
