July 10, 2024 - Michael Kiwanuka returns with his powerful new single, “Floating Parade” via Geffen Records. Listen BELOW.

The release follows Michael’s return to the stage for a Summer of festival performances across the UK and Europe that included a stunning set on Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage last month, where “Floating Parade” was first debuted.

Underpinned by a driving bass line, a stirring flourish of strings, and capped by Michael’s distinctively phenomenal vocal, “Floating Parade” reunites the peerless British songwriter with the production team, Danger Mouse and Inflo, that has proven to be such a winning formula over his past two records.

The song itself is loosely written about utilising your senses to find an escape, particularly in oppressive circumstances, whether spiritually or physically. The floating parade is the metaphorical movement of taking yourself out of an uncomfortable situation and seeking comfort elsewhere, driven almost solely by the power of the mind.

In 2020, Michael’s widely acclaimed third album, 2019’s ‘KIWANUKA’, won the Mercury Prize and heralded his first Grammy nomination for Best Rock Album.

“Floating Parade” is his first new music since the release of standalone track “Beautiful Life” in 2021, for the Netflix documentary “Convergence: Courage in a Crisis” by the Oscar winning director, Orlando von Einsiedel.

In late September Michael heads out on a 14-date co-headline tour of the US with Brittany Howard. Remaining tickets are on sale now via Michael’s website.
