Today Kindness release their fourth single “Raise Up” from upcoming, highly-anticipated album Something Like A War, out September 6 on Female Energy. This uptempo gospel track was recorded in New York and features backing vocals from Vuyo Sotashe, Amanda Khiri and Bryndon Cook.
Following the release of Something Like A War’s acclaimed previous singles — “Cry Everything feat. Robyn,”“Lost Without feat. Seinabo Sey,” and “Hard To Believe feat. Jazmine Sullivan” — “Raise Up” brings Kindness’ vocals to the forefront. They are set to embark on a U.S. tour in Autumn including dates in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
Kindness’ third full length album, Something Like A War, is a culmination of years spent collaborating with the likes of Robyn, Jazmine Sullivan, Seinabo Sey and Cosima among many others. Produced entirely by Kindness themselves (Adam Bainbridge) the record is a collection of works representing a period of reflection and transformation over the course of four years following their second album, Otherness.
