Michael Kiwanuka's debut album Home Again was released this spring.</e

After a year that saw Kiwanuka win BBC's Sound of 2012 poll, the Brit quickly took both sides of the ocean by storm with the 70's steeped sound of his debut, Home Again. We caught up with him in the woods of Willie Nelson's ranch (seriously) right before his set at the Heartbreaker Banquet to reflect on the past few months, his rise to fame, and the heroes that have inspired him.

Watch the interview above and then check out the tracks below.
