Baba Ali - Living It Up / Black & Blue

A. Living It Up
AA. Black & Blue

Danger Mouse protégé Baba Ali releases his double A-side 7”
“Living It Up / Black & Blue” on 18 February 2022 via Zen F.C., the
label run by Yard Act members James Smith and Ryan Needham.
It’s the first new music since Baba Ali’s much heralded Memphis
Industries debut LP, 2021’s Memory Device.
On the new single, Baba shares: “We first started work on ‘Living It
Up’ and ‘Black & Blue’ during 2020, which was, in spite of all the
challenges, a very fruitful creative period for us. At the end of the
summer 2020, we decided to set these songs aside to work on the
album, Memory Device with Al Doyle. After touring the new record
in the fall, we returned to the abandoned songs and immediately
realised that they felt even more relevant to how our live
performances on stage have become. The songs also feel like a
bridge between what we've released so far and the direction we are
heading in. We're doubly excited that we've been able to share this
release through Yard Act’s label Zen F.C.”
Yard Act’s James Smith says of the release: “We loved Baba Ali's
music from the moment we heard it. They're joining us for our debut
album tour in February. When Baba sent through some new tunes
he and his bandmate Nik were working on we saw an opportunity to
reboot Zen F.C., and to preserve on wax and share some great
music with the world. It was a no-brainer for us. We are honoured,
we are buzzed to have Baba Ali as the first ever non-YA release on
Zen F.C. - follow the label, there will be much more to come in the
future.”
Baba Ali is supporting Yard Act on their forthcoming UK tour before
heading to SXSW
