Theophilus London – Rio Ft. The Menahan Street Band

After months of recording in different studios around the world (Paris, Berlin, Brooklyn), Theophilus London releases the brand new track "Rio" featuring The Menahan Street Band. Produced by Thomas Brenneck and the Menahan Street Band, the track showcases TL's new sound on his forthcoming album, due this fall.

"I went to Rio in 2010 to play a festival alongside Erykah Badu and Femi Kuti and it was incredible," says TL on the reason this song came about. "I was only supposed to be down there for a couple days, but wound up staying in Rio for two weeks. The trip gave me so much energy and I met so many amazing people that it inspired me to make a song in Rio's honor."

Theophilus will be performing "Rio" on the main stage at Coachella Saturday April 13th and April 20th. He's also confirmed for Lollapalooza this summer.
