Angelique Kidjo – Remain In Light
Limited edition, numbered and silkscreened unique-cover version of Angelique Kidjo’s Remain In Light album. Edition of 150 copies. Printed by Hit & Run.
Beninese Afro-pop star and 3-time Grammy winner Angélique Kidjo has partnered with 2015 Grammy producer of the year Jeff Bhasker (Kanye West, The Rolling Stones, Beyonce) for a full circle re-imagining of Talking Heads’ 1980 landmark album Remain in Light. The album features appearances by Fela’s long time drummer, Afrobeat legend, Tony Allen alongside Alicia Keys, Questlove, Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend and Blood Orange. Fine artist Kerry James Marshall collaborated on the album artwork with art director Paul Ritter.
The silkscreened jacket houses a test press of the album, mastered and lacquered by Sterling Sound under Bhasker’s approval. This unique art-piece will not be reprinted. A normal retail version of the album will be released in late autumn.
