MUZI RETURNS WITH A TALE OF A MILLENNIAL LONGING FOR LOVE WITH FOOL’S LOVE FT. BLACKROSE
“Quite simply represents the best of what South African music can offer today.” – Nova Radio (France)
“…Deeper than Deep House” – i-D
“Muzi is one to watch, one to listen to, and most importantly one to dance to.” –
PIOTR ORLOV, AFROPUNK
“Muzi gets up with music in his head and doesn’t go to bed until he’s got it out. I really respect him.” – DAMON ALBARN
“An invigorating cocktail of high-energy bass music and ear-catching African rhythms” – MIXMAG
“Super-catchy electronica” – THE INDEPENDENT
Continuing the story from previous album Afrovision’s ‘Microwave Love’, Muzi‘s newest single, ‘Fool’s Love’ will drop worldwide on Wednesday, 7 July. The third single from his highly anticipated upcoming album (to be announced shortly), Fool’s Love features frequent collaborator, BlackRose. Clout Killed The Kids are once again video directors with the talented Rashid Bhika as the D.O.P.
“Instant gratification that leads to a constant honeymoon phase with no real connection,” is the main theme Muzi explored in the irresistible lyrics and melody. The video sees Muzi being “clowned” by his pursuit for an unrequited love. Ditching his signature rolled beanie and leather jacket and pants, Muzi takes on a new look with a full chrome clown suit and a bouquet of red roses and balloons.
‘Fool’s Love’ is a fitting glimpse of the forthcoming album, setting the cosmic stage for another chapter in the adventures of Muzi’s alter-ego, Zulu Skywalker. The single and video encapsulate so much of what makes Muzi unique; self-love, vulnerability, a sense of place and a powerful uncompromising audio and visual aesthetic.
The track follows on from recent releases ‘Interblaktic’ and ‘Need Dat’ feat. The Temple, all of which will be featured on his album out this fall.
