The Very Best - Press 2014

Beloved global pop duo THE VERY BEST – aka Malawian singer Esau Mwamwaya and Swedish producer Johan Hugo – report back with a new track. The slow grooving Hear Me is the first teaser from the band’s yet untitled third album which will be released next spring via Moshi Moshi. It follows the critically acclaimed 2012 record MTMTMK.

Hugo on the theme for the song: ‘Esau really wanted to write a song about the corruption, poverty and struggle of Malawi, and how frustrated he was about the fact that very little has changed since independence.’ The clip, directed by Hugo, was also shot at the M’dala Chikowa village in south Malawi where the band also recorded the forthcoming new record.
