About this item

Petite Noir is the architect of Noirwave – a musical and cultural movement that draws creative energy from punk aesthetics and the fragmented identity of today’s African diaspora. The Congolese artist was born in Belgium, raised in South Africa, and is now based between London and Paris.

MotherFather is his long-awaited second album, and it has a subtitle: ‘The darkness is comforting sometimes’. As Petite Noir explains: “It’s about going through the darkness. But it’s also about rebirth. Because the dark times are needed for us to grow.”

Production by Dave Sitek of TV On The Radio, CID RIM, Moshik Kop, Tropics, Futura, guest features from rising star Sampa The Great, and Grammy-nominated Florida jazz musician Theo Croker. Physical formats include an exclusive bonus track ‘Lili’.
