Three years after Résistance, Malian band Songhoy Blues announced the release of their third album which will be outon October 2nd via Transgressive. We already shared “Worry”; “Badala” is a new excerpt. Talking about the track, Aliou from the band said:
“When you go out to clubs in Soho, London or New York, you hear hard rock music that can make people move. We wanted to make a rock club crowd get involved with Songhoy Blues. It’s about Songhoy Blues reaching even further than before. We want to see people jumping on a Songhoy Blues track, like they were at a concert. Matt Sweeney said something important the day before we went into the studio. He said ‘We need to make a real Songhoy Blues album. Songhoy Blues stage energy is crazy. Why don’t you put that energy straight in the song?’ That’s what we did.”
