Tony Allen ft. Damon Albarn “Go Back” Video - Mass Appeal
"A few months back, legendary Afrobeat drummer Tony Allen shared his latest collaboration with ex Blur and Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn, the beautiful ballad “Go Back.” Albarn blessed fans with his vocals and keys while Tony kept the rhythm on the song, which will appear on Film of Life, releasing next month on JazzVillage.
Now to complement the track, the duo have shared an equally beautiful video, which also serves as an homage to the African refugees who ended up on the Italian island of Lampedusa. Shot in black and white, the stunning video evokes a visceral reaction through documentation of its subjects. The softness and melody of the track makes the experience all the more poignant.”
