YOUNG FATHERS – IN MY VIEW

Young Fathers announced that they’d completed work on a new album in November last year with a new track entitled ‘Lord‘.  The trio – Alloysious Massaquoi, Graham ‘G’ Hastings and Kayus Bankole – told us to expect “something typically unique and exhilarating, but leaner, more muscular and self-assured than ever before.”  Today, the album’s title,…
