22 SEPTEMBER 2020 (TORONTO, ON) - Acclaimed British musician Michael Kiwanuka has filmed a new session recording of “Solid Ground”, lifted from his third album, KIWANUKA, performed live from London’s Victoria & Albert Museum.
The new rendition, alongside a string quartet was filmed by director Raja Virdi last week, with young Atlantan artist Markeidric Walker’s portrait of Michael for the KIWANUKA album artwork finding a temporary space within the iconic V&A collection.
Later this week, Michael and eleven of his peers will discover who takes home this year’s Mercury Music Prize, with KIWANUKA giving Michael his third nomination in as many albums.
RIP John Lewis.
