I'm Getting Ready - Michael Kiwanuka

Feels Like: Mayer Hawthorne, Ottis Retting, Mavis Staples
So I know that this one is not necessarily the most new, but this definitely classifies as music worth sharing. Michael Kiwanuka is a London native who first got his start hanging out with Labirinth, a collaborator of Tiny Tempah, and playing for Tottenham rapper Chipmunk. He ended up departing from that scene to develop his own sound and delve deeper into the sound of his chief influences,
Dylan and Retting. Good company. This one comes off his debut album Home Again and I have to tell you, my ears are digging it. Very honest, very soulful. Check it out guys.
