Music from Youssou N'Dour Documentary "I Bring What I Love" Due Out on Nonesuch January 26, 2010
As announced earlier this month in the Nonesuch Journal, Nonesuch Records is set to release the soundtrack from the critically acclaimed documentary about African superstar Youssou N’Dour, I Bring What I Love, in January 2010. The album will now be available on January 26, rather than on January 12, as previously announced. The film will be out on DVD via Oscilloscope sometime in early 2010.
The album features all-new recordings of music from throughout N’Dour’s career as well as two new songs, including the documentary’s title theme, written by N’Dour, Martin Davich, and the film’s composer James Newton Howard. The soundtrack to the stirring film by Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi richly represents the music and the message of N’Dour the artist and the humanitarian.
