Award-winning Sauti Sol release Midnight Train

Multi-award-winning group Sauti Sol return with their fifth studio album, Midnight Train, released yesterday on Universal Music Africa. The 13-track album takes you through the journey of life, embracing the trials and tribulations that come with it.

The title track, ‘Midnight Train’, produced by Andre Harris (Justin Bieber, Kanye West, Jill Scott), is a representation of their never-say-die attitude. The song is about their hustle and the effort they have put into their career, burning the midnight oil.
     ‘We’ve had an amazing journey so far and it’s like an evermoving train. Each time we make it to a destination, we realise the road doesn’t stop there. We continue to better ourselves and look forward to bringing our fans along with us as we grow,’ says member Chimano.
     With many accolades, awards and global recognition, Sauti Sol has been soaring high, offering four critically acclaimed singles ahead of the album’s release. The release of the rhythmic love jam ‘Suzanna’ set the stage for the album.  ‘Disco Matanga’ featuring Sho Madjozi and Black Motion enticed fans as the lead song from Netflix’s Queen Sono and the uplifting ‘Brighter Days’, featuring the Soweto Gospel Choir, gave hope at the beginning of the world pandemic. The recent release ‘Insecure’ explores the fear and insecurity that lies deep within.
     Singing in Swahili, Luhya, Luo and English, Sauti Sol prides themselves on storytelling as an East African tradition that permeates music from that region and this is what has kept them relevant with audiences across the world and earned them so many accolades along the way.
