Premiere: K'NAAN "Gold in Timbuktu"


K'NAAN serves up another preview of his upcoming album, Country, God or the Girl, today with "Gold in Timbuktu." It's a highly melodic, engaging cut that also features some sharp rhymes from the Somalia-bred artist, who has a knack for mixing hip-hop with poppier sentiments.

You can stream the track, view the album's tracklist, and K'NAAN's upcoming tour dates below. You can also pre-order tickets and the LP here. Country, God or the Girl drops October 16.
