Next week, Tuareg desert blues greats Tinariwen will follow up 2014’s Emaar with Elwan, another album that the group recorded in Joshua Tree, California. They recorded both LPs in the US because they’ve been forced to leave their Mali homeland. The new album features guest appearances from a few other guitar mystics, including Kurt Vile, Mark Lanegan, Matt Sweeney, and Alain Johannes. We’ve already posted the early song “Assawt,” and now you can stream the whole thing below, via NPR.
Elwan is out 2/10 on Anti-.
