Listen to Omar Souleyman’s new song, “Wenu Wenu”, produced by Four Tet


    Syrian musician Omar Souleyman has recruited Kieran Hebden, a.k.a. Four Tet, to produce his latest album, Wenu Wenu, due out October 22nd via Ribbon Music. Though Souleyman’s been making music for nearly two decades — even collaborating with both Björk and the Gorillaz — it’s his very first release to be properly recorded in a studio.

    Our first peek at Wenu Wenu comes in the form of its title track, which sees Souleyman longing for a woman “who kills with her beautiful eyes.” Listen in below via its lyric video (via Pitchfork).

    Wenu Wenu will be available in nearly all forms: cassette, limited edition LP, CD and MP3. Pre-orders are ongoing.


    Wenu Wenu Tracklist:
    01. Wenu Wenu
    02. Ya Yumma
    03. Nahy
    04. Khattaba
    05. Warni Warni
    06. Mawal Jamar
    07. Yagbuni
