Michael Kiwanuka You've Got Nothing To Lose / Waitin' 'Round To Die on 7" Vinyl
Michael Kiwanuka, a 25 year-old U.K. native of Ugandan heritage, made his way through Nashville, TN in the summer of 2013 with just enough pause and aplomb to commit this morsel to tape at Third Man Records. The A-side "You've Got Nothing to Lose" is an original composition, featuring The Buzzards' Dominic Davis on upright bass and Cory Younts on piano, joined also by fellow balladeer Lillie Mae Rische on fiddle. Their contributions transform his work into a stone-cold groove with almost orchestral underpinnings, making it a fitting extension of their previous Blue Series. The single also features a chilling rendition of Townes Van Zandt's infamous "Waitin' 'Round to Die" on the B-side, the perfect compliment to the timbre and mood of the A-side.
