Tony Allen’s final studio album, called There Is No End, is being released this April.
For There Is No End, Allen set out to give a voice to younger artists, especially rappers, amidst a backdrop of global unrest.
As he explained, “I want to make something very much in the present but also bring the young rappers back home.”
There Is No End features Skepta, Sampa The Great, Lava La Rue, and Danny Brown, as well as Nigerian novelist and poet Ben Okri, Damon Albarn, and more.
The album’s release marks the one year anniversary of Allen’s death, at age 79.
