In advance of its official release on February 26, 2013, the album art for “Nyash UP!” is out! As Chicago Afrobeat Project’s fourth studio effort, the group took a unique approach on the album by mashing Radiohead and Fugazi with Fela Kuti, while also reinterpreting songs from Marvin Gaye, Talking Heads, System of a Down, Ceu, 808 State, the Vandermark 5, and Led Zeppelin.

Listen to an audio preview of “Inner City Blues Make Ya Wanna Holler (Marvin Gaye)” featuring Chicago vocalists Ugochi and Squair Blaq.

Discounted pre-orders are also available now.
