25 March 2019, 16:15 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Damon Albarn's Africa Express just released new four-track EP, Molo, which is a stepping stone towards their album due to land this summer.

MOLO, which means "Hello" in South Africa's Xhosa language, arrived last Friday (22 March), and featured artists such as Damon Albarn, Gruff Rhys, Ghetts, Mr Jukes, and more.

The EP is a small taster of their forthcoming album which is due to arrive this summer, and was recorded in the space of a week during a visit to Johannesbourg, South Africa, last year.

Africa Express' new MOLO EP is the first release from Albarn and co since 2014's Terry Riley's In C Mali.

MOLO is out now. Africa Express play a sold-out show in Leytonstone this Friday (29 March) as part of the Waltham Forest London Borough of Culture celebrations. Find out more.
