After months of recording in different studios around the world (Paris, Berlin, Brooklyn), Theophilus London releases the music video to his 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 at Lollapalooza this summer.
Upcoming Tour Dates:
Sat, July 6th – Brooklyn, NY – Prospect Park (Celebrate Brooklyn, Free Show)
