This week “the Scottish/Liberian/Nigerian trio Young Fathers set out on a massive headlining tour through the U.S., Canada, the UK and a few places in between. Ahead of the tour the group now share a preview of what to expect from their pop music revival. The clip [below], brilliantly narrated by their manager Tim London and partially shot while they were on tour in South Africa earlier this year, is an arty redefinition of what it means to make pop music in 2015. “Pop means something different where we’re from,” London says. “Where we’re from, pop is the soundtrack to youth. It includes all the genres apart from the most obscure ambient music. Just about every genre has its pop songs.” — via OkayAfrica

Their new album White Men Are Black Men Too is out NOW on Bid Dada.
