Michael Kiwanuka is back with new single, “Floating Parade,” the track is out today via via Geffen Records. This September 2024, Michael heads out on a 14-date co-headline North American tour with Brittany Howard. The release follows Michael’s return to the stage for a Summer of festival performances across the UK and Europe that included a stunning set on Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage last month, where “Floating Parade” was first debuted.

“The song itself is loosely written about utilising your senses to find an escape, particularly in oppressive circumstances, whether spiritually or physically. The floating parade is the metaphorical movement of taking yourself out of an uncomfortable situation and seeking comfort elsewhere, driven almost solely by the power of the mind”. “Floating Parade” is his first new music since the release of standalone track “Beautiful Life” in 2021, for the Netflix documentary “Convergence: Courage in a Crisis” by the Oscar winning director, Orlando von Einsiedel.
