It's out on July 31st...

Makaya McCraven will release his new album 'Universal Beings E&F Sides' on July 31st.

The ever-productive jazz figure returns this month, fresh from his Gil-Scott Heron re-work 'We're New Again'.

Out on July 31st, 'Universal Beings E&F Sides' is intended as an addendum to his 2018 album 'Universal Beings', and continues his global journeys.

Recorded at sites in Los Angeles, New York, and London, the drummer/producer links with a raft of talent from these cities.

The full cast list is imposing, with Makaya working alongside Miguel-Atwood Ferguson, Brandee Younger, Shabaka Hutchings, Nubya Garcia, Jeff Parker, and many more.

New piece 'Mak Attack' is online now - tune in below.
