Riz Ahmed returns with striking new track ‘Once Kings’, announces special livestream performance this December

Fresh from acclaimed recent album ‘The Long Goodbye’, Riz Ahmed has unveiled a brand new track in ‘Once Kings’

The striking new cut, produced by Ben Khan and CID RIM, sees Riz delve into personal territory to spellbinding effect. Complete with a video featuring exclusive clips from latest movie ‘Mogul Mowgli’ (also out today), interspersed with his own childhood footage, it’s another bold step.

Speaking about the track, Riz explains: “This is the most personal track I have ever made, drawn from the same experiences that inspired the film Mogul Mowgli. It’s about events forcing you to face what really matters; fame or family, success or spirituality, the pressure and desire to represent your people or the need to preserve your own health and well being. I think a lot of people can relate to this feeling of re-thinking their priorities, during this pandemic.”

Riz Ahmed has also announced today a special one-off livestream performance of ‘The Long Goodbye’, his latest album released earlier in the year, to take place on December 19th. Set to be a creative tour-de-force, the stream will archival footage, immersive sounds and much more come together for one special night (tying with the live show Riz was meant to perform over the past few months). Tickets for the show will be available from December 1st

Until then, check out ‘Once Kings’ below:
