Nitin Sawhney launched his new album, Last Days Of Meaning, at The Royal Albert Hall. Now that's quiet an arena for an album launch. So if you go big it's gotta be big, and it is. Definitely a contender for album of the year.
The Devil and Midnight (feat. Yolanda Quartey)
The first track off Nitin Sawhney's "Last Days of Meaning".
Lyric video by Luca Brenna and AWAL
Nitin Sawhney's new composition on the 140 year old 9,999 pipe Willis Organ commissioned by The Royal Albert Hall and played by jazz musician and organist James Taylor. Also featuring Engine-Earz front man Prashant Mistry on keys, Ashwin Srinivasan on the Flute and Martyn Kaine on the drums. This was the over the top, so to speak, encore. Amazing.
