K'naan - Troubadour

Ever since I first heard K'naan's music, I've been a devoted fan. It only took one song. The music, the lyrics and K'naan's delivery were all so potent that I knew immediately that he was someone I wanted to hear a LOT more from. I started poking around in search engines to find out more about him and his life story is simply awe inspiring. I was in Japan at the time and I ordered his CD online. The contents of the disc that arrived at my home, 'The Dustyfoot Philosopher', some weeks later touched my soul in a way that no other artist has in quite a long time.

I've eagerly awaited word of a new release from him. Finally, the wait is nearing a close. K'naan's second studio album, titled Troubadour, is scheduled to release on February 24th, 2009. He's already released 3 singles from the album. One of them, "Somalia" is available as a free download. The other two, "ABC's" and "Dreamer" can be heard on the artists web site.

If you've never heard this artist's music, definitely take the time when you can to discover something POWERFUL.
