Alloysious Massaquoi, Graham "G" Hastings and Kayus Bankole (aka Young Fathers) have released their new album Cocoa Sugar.
Following a handful of teasers and previously released songs, the full record arrived Friday, serving as the trio's followup to 2015's White Men Are Black Men Too and their Mercury Prize-winning debut Dead, which was released in 2014.
The album includes previously shared tracks "In My View" and "Lord," the latter of which was released back in October. The new LP had been one of Variance's 45 Albums to Watch for in 2018.
Young Fathers are performing this weekend at SXSW in Austin. And in May, they'll be back stateside to support LCD Soundsystem and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs at Los Angeles' Hollywood Bowl.
