(Digital single) World Circuit, 2009-05-11

The legend of Afrobeat, Tony Allen brings us Too Many Prisoners (Elewon Po), the first glimpse of his new album Secret Agent, out on World Circuit on 8th June. Too Many Prisoners stays true to Afrobeat's original, trademark embrace of protest lyrics, urging resistance to oppression, and features Tony himself on lead vocals. Secret Agent, a majestic slice of hardcore roots Afrobeat, is Allen's debut for World Circuit and his first release since he became a founder member of The Good The Bad and The Queen (alongside Damon Albarn, Paul Simenon and Simon Tong).
