Michael Kiwanuka - Bones x Rest

Michael Kiwanuka is a man who shot into the spotlight earlier this year after becoming BBC's Sound of 2012 winner. Along with signing to Polydor Records and supporting Adele on tour in 2011, it's been a rather exciting 12 months for the young singer/songwriter, but March 12th is a day when life becomes even more exciting, with his highly anticipated debut album 'Home Again' set for release. We've had the pleasure of hearing a few cuts from the album recently, but the Guardian today uploaded a full album stream, and these are my two favourite tracks after a couple of listens. The comparisons to Otis Redding and Bill Withers are very worthy - this kid is special. Pre-order HERE.

Michael Kiwanuka - Home Again (Live on BBC Radio 1)

BBC Sound of 2012 winner Michael Kiwanuka today dropped in to chat to Zane Lowe and play his single 'Home Again' live and acoustic for Zane and BBC Radio 1 listeners. Beating the incredible Frank Ocean, Azealia Banks, Skrillex and Niki & The Dove to the title, hopefully Michael can emulate the success of previous winners such as Adele, Jessie J & Ellie Goulding. Incredible talent.
