Sinkane has a new album, Dépaysé, on the way later this month. Already we’ve heard a pair of previews in the title track and jubilant “Everybody”, and now a third song has been revealed.

Titled “Ya Sudan”, the afro-funk tune sees band leader Ahmed Gallab exploring his cultural roots and identity as the child of Sudanese parents. He explained further in a statement:

“I am so inspired by how the recent uprising in Sudan has unified Sudanese people all over the world. I feel like we are truly understanding our identity. It feels inclusive and welcoming. Sudan is one of the most diverse places on Earth. From the Nuba Mountains to Port Sudan. Dongola to Darfur. Kassala to Khartoum. We are people made up of different languages, cultures, and religions. Our differences create our beautiful and rich identity. As for me, growing up outside of Sudan has given depth to my identity. This is the message of ‘Ya Sudan’.”

Stream it below via a video featuring Sinkane’s childhood family photos.

Dépaysé officially hits shelves May 31st through City Slang. To coincide with today’s track release, Sinkane has expanded his live schedule to include a fall US tour that kicks off in September. Tickets go on sale Friday, May 10th via LiveNation, after which you can check the secondary market here.
