from Niger, with love.

Big ups, and thank you for all the support! While awaiting the LP, Mdou and BRAINSTORM's collaboration 7" is available for free download.

To be featured on the upcoming LP, Mdou's autotuned love ballad was recently covered by Portland's BRAINSTORM, who painstakingly wrote new English lyrics that phonetically matched the original ones, which they also autotuned. Grab it here (just enter zero in the "Buy Now"):

Also, I've put together a little Youtube music video for Mdou:
