Bloody hell. Sometimes all it takes is one song, and I’m bursting. And on a day when I could really use that “one song”, along comes Michael Kiwanuka’s, “I’m Getting Ready”. Just elegantly smooth, warm, and comforting, this is a tune that has brought me back from one of those lingering low points that you don’t even quite realise you’re in, until you feel yourself come back up.
“I’m Getting Ready”, the title track off Michael’s second EP, arrives alongside “I Need You By My Side” and “Any Day Will Do Fine” on September 18 on Communion Records.
