Break out the jazz flute, it's Michael Kiwanuka!

Oh, sorry. Wrong clip.

That was meant to be the new video from Michael Kiwanuka, whose Sound Of 2012 status hasn't exactly helped him to multi-platinum sales. Home Again, his debut album, entered the chart at number four when it came out, but it's been slumming it in the lower reaches of the Top 40 ever since.

Which is a shame, because it's a superbly-crafted set of songs, as comfortable as one of Labrinth's woolly cardigans. If you decide to check it out, I recommend the deluxe edition - as the extra disc of alternative mixes by Ethan Johns (Laura Marling, Kings Of Leon) is actually an improvement on the official release. He gives the material a slightly sharper focus than the Paul Butler, whose production sometimes disappears in a fug of incense and "special" cigarettes.

But I digress. Here's the flute-enhanced new single, I'll Get Along, which should make you sink back in your chair and go "aaaaaaahhh" for approximately three-and-a-half minutes.
