Don’t kid yourself, Global Citizen is the most exciting event to happen in SA in ages and as we start counting down the days, we now also have the first official Global Citizen recording to look forward to.

“Global Citizen EP 1” will be released on the 30th of November through Parlophone Records and features Pharrell Williams, Stormzy, David Guetta, Cassper Nyovest, Wizkid, Tiwa Savage, Los Unidades (it’s Coldplay they’ve just had a midlife band crisis and changed their name) amongst others.

Spearheaded by Chris Martin, the curator of Global Citizen’s annual live music festivals, proceeds from the EP will support Global Citizen’s campaigns and advocacy efforts to end extreme poverty.

The EP’s lead track ‘E-Lo’ is available now across all digital platforms and as an immediate download when you pre-order the EP.

The song features Los Unidades, Pharrell Williams and Jozzy and is accompanied by a Nelson Mandela inspired lyric video – to mark what would have been the South African leader’s centenary year.
