Pop innovator Rina Mushonga has shared her brand new single, ‘For A Fool’, which will be included in her imminent second record. Out via [PIAS] Recordings, the new LP will be released on February 15th as a follow up to her acclaimed 2014’s ‘The Wild, The Wilderness’.

The new track takes shape following a simple pattern, made of elegant electronic and incisive bass lines, that serves as a perfect basis for Rina’s vocals. Elements of afrobeat are still at the forefront in the Dutch-Zimbabwean artist’s refined production, for a track that results in an explosion of voices and sonic elements.

Explaining the origins of the track, she explaines“This is an old love song or rather a heart-ache song. Old, in the sense that it was plucked into existence over a period of time- in parts fictional in others less so. In a way it chronicles a betrayed lover tormented by the desire to trust again whilst acknowledging that everything has been tainted and can’t go back to how they were.”
 
Listen to ‘For A Fool’ here. Rina Mushonga will be headlining London’s Shacklewell Arms on March 19th. One not to be missed.
