05 JULY 2019 (TORONTO, ON) - Michael Kiwanuka and Tom Misch are very pleased to share the video for "Money", their sunshine-kissed, disco pop collaboration. Directed by Louis Bhose, the video was filmed in Madrid.

Money is a song that harnesses the distinctive, raw vocal of Kiwanuka, here dabbling with falsetto, backed by Misch’s gloriously upbeat signature guitar sound and disco beat. It’s unashamedly loose-limbed and colourful, and it signals one of the Summer’s first definitive songs. Money features YEBBA on backing vocals and was mixed by Grammy Award winning engineer/producer Russell Elevado (D’Angelo, Kamasi Washington).
Over the past few months, Kiwanuka has been sharing glimpses of his return to the studio working on the follow up to Love & Hate. That second record was one of 2016’s most acclaimed, and garnered Michael both his first number one album and his first BRIT Award nomination too. Ahead of his own new music, Money shows a new versatility and a lighter touch.
Tom Misch released his acclaimed debut album ‘Geography’ in April 2018 via his own Beyond The Groove label. It debuted at number 8 in the UK chart upon release, and featured guest spots by Loyle Carner, De La Soul, and Goldlink. It’s a record that flirts with a variety of genres but lands somewhere distinctively left of centre, in a world all of Tom’s own design. Money showcases that complete vibe of sound that has become so resonant throughout his recordings.
Michael returned to the live arena with a series of European festival performances and an uplifting, highlight-strewn performance on the Park Stage as the sun was setting (watch back via iPlayer here). The festival appearances continue throughout the summer and are detailed below, including his first festival headline slot at End of the Road on 30th August.
Off the back of a sold-out headline tour across Asia, Tom returned to the UK to headline Bristol Sound at Harbourside on 26th June. He will perform at Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival in Dallas, Texas in September.
