Win Vinyl From Michael Kiwanuka!

Grab a free 7" from a Lollapalooza featured artist and beautifully rich, ragged voice of soul.

If you haven't heard of Michael Kiwanuka, that's all about to change – especially if you're hitting the major festivals arriving in the most productive musical stretch of Summer. The delightfully soulful singer/songwriter has a wealth of promise and the full attention of some of the biggest names in music – and now CraveOnline is proud to bring some free vinyl your way to help sweeten the introduction!

Michael's new album Home Again was produced by Paul Butler from The Bees in his home studio on the Isle of Wight. The album takes Michael’s effortless melodies, observant lyrics and smooth voice and builds them into timeless and rootsy folk-inflected modern soul. Michael and Paul played most of the instruments on the album. Home Again was released in the Spring in the UK to great acclaim, debuting as a Top 5 best seller, and with Q Magazine calling it a “life-affirming…accomplished work of depth and distinction.”

Unlike the UK release, which included ten songs, the US version features 11, with the addition being the Dan Auerbach-produced “Lasan.” Of the song, Rolling Stone said “it’s [Michael’s] rich, ragged voice that pulls you in. He sounds like his own man, not an imitator.”

CraveOnline's spreading the good word by hooking you up with a 7" vinyl record for "I'm Getting Ready". 

To enter to win, either follow CraveMusic on Twitter or 'Like' us on Facebook, and shoot us a message with the hashtag #HomeAgain - we'll handle the rest! U.S. residents only please!

Born and raised in North London by Ugandan immigrants, Michael’s music is drawing comparisons to Otis Redding, Bill Withers and Marvin Gaye. Earlier this year he topped the BBC Sounds of 2012 list, joining the ranks of previous winners including Adele, Corinne Bailey Rae, 50 Cent, Ellie Goulding, and others. You can catch him at Lollapalooza next week, or at any of his tour dates below, which conclude with an appearance at Austin City Limits.

Pick up "Home Again" on iTunes, and be sure to keep up with Michael at his official site.
