2 x LP pressing. At just 27 years of age, the album sees Kuti finding his own idiosyncratic voice as songwriter, singer, and band leader, heading up Egypt 80, the extraordinary combo first fronted by his renowned father, Fela Kuti. The album follows Seun Kuti's critically praised debut, 2008's 'Many Things', which was unanimously hailed for continuing Kuti's musical legacy. The mighty 'From Africa with Fury: Rise' is produced by Brian Eno, John Reynolds and Seun himself, with additional production by Godwin Logie. Eno - an avowed fan - has nothing but the highest praise for Seun and his band, hailing them for "making some of the biggest, wildest, livest music on the planet." Co-producer Reynolds (whose work as musician, producer, and mixer spans such artists as Sinéad O'Connor, U2, and Natacha Atlas) agrees, applauding Kuti and Egypt 80's distinctive Afrobeat as "a musical adrenaline rush."
