Caleb Kunle releases the quietly triumphant song ‘Call Me Mad’


The London-based Irish-raised Nigerian artist Caleb Kunle is set to release an EP called Rose Hertz in October that “explores archetypes of love and black masculinity” and will be accompanied by short films on the subject.

The six-track EP was recorded in lockdown with musicians that have never met and the four films were created remotely across Ireland, UK, USA, Colombia and Nigeria.

The lead track from the EP ‘Call Me Mad’ is a beaut of a song – leaning on bright honeyed soul vocals from Kunle augmented by flute and brass that lifts the tune into a lightly triumphant mode.

The EP will be available on October 23rd. Watch out for the accompanying films.
