The South African multi-disciplinary artist and musician Nakhane recently announced their third studio album. Alongside the announcement they released the Leading LinesEP, a collection of tracks from the upcoming record, including the brand new song You’ve Got Me (Living Again).

In a statement on their new album, the musician and songwriter explains: “It’s an existential sex album. Almost every song on it has some kind of wink towards sex. It’s not necessarily a seductive, come to me, bedroom eyes kind of sex—it’s much more inquisitive, psychological sex. When I wrote You Will Not Die it was at the end of my relationship with Christianity, and then when I wrote Bastard Jargon I’d moved to London and I threw myself into just wanting to feel good.”
