After receiving the Mercury Prize for Album of the Year in 2014, Young Fathers are ready to have yet another year of success. The group plans to kick start things with the official announcement of their new album as well as upcoming tour dates. Their new album titled White Men Are Black Men Too is due out on April 7 via Big Dada, while their tour begins on April 9. Which means the trio is ready to start spring off with a bang.
Young Fathers followed the announcement of their new album and tour with a new single titled “Rain Or Shine.” The first single from their forthcoming album sets the tone in an exciting way. “Rain Or Shine” is upbeat and energetic. The lyrics, simple but catchy, seem perfectly made for roaring crowds to chant during their upcoming shows.
