Tony Allen To Play Village Underground

The Afrobeat innovator returns to London this November

Fresh from the release of ‘Go Back’ (featuring Damon Albarn), the first single to be taken from his forthcoming album ‘Film of Life’, legendary Afrobeat drummer Tony Allen has announced he will be launching the album at London venue Village Underground on 20th November 2014.
 
Film of Life see Allen collaborate with the trio of French producers, The Jazzbastards, and a cast of world-class musicians. The album sees the Lagos born inventor of Afrobeat travel through jazz, groove and psychedelic pop. Presumably he'll also use the Village Underground show to delve into some of his superb back catalogue. Advance tickets are available from here, listen to the 'Go Back' single below.
