Of the album Joan Wasser says ‘Damon Albarn introduced me to Afrobeat legend, Tony Allen, at the March 2019 Africa Express event The Circus and we hit it off. Tony and I played a version of Nina Simone’s ‘I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel to Be Free’ and decided to record together. I asked my old friend and fierce musician, Dave Okumu, to join from London and that November, in a Parisian studio, we improvised all night. When the world shut down, I used those recordings to write a record entitled ‘The Solution Is Restless’.
