The husband & wife duo Amadou & Mariam will be releasing a new album full all new Mailan tunes. This time around they got some help from some impressive artists including TV On The Radio, Santigold, Theophlius London, and Yeah Yeah Yeah's Nick Zinner. The name of the album will be called Folila, and will be released on Nonesuch/Becasue Record on March 27, 2012. The duo will also be releasing an EP of the same name on January 24.
This digital EP includes "Dougou Badia," the first song off Amadou & Mariam's forthcoming album, Folila. Santigold, who co-wrote the song with Mariam, joins her on vocals. Also included are an alternate mix of the song by Danger Mouse cohort Kennie Takahashi; the album track “Oh Amadou” (with Bertrand Cantat); and a live version of “Wily Kataso” from Eclipse, a show staged in complete darkness at the 2011 Manchester International Festival.
In the meantime take a listen to the track "Dougou Badia" featuring Santigold.
