David Ivar aka Black Yaya (as well as one half of French duo, Herman Dune) has announced his debut self-titled album, which is due out 2nd March via City Slang. We're happy to introduce a song taken from the upcoming release, 'Vigilante'. Setting the tone with thumping drums and shimmers of sun-warped harmonica, with a constant serving of strummed guitar, it's a Western-leaning track that conjures gunslingers and whisky.

You'll also find some live dates for Black Yaya at the end of this post. Grab ticket's for the London show at The Lexington here.
