    Check out "Lasan," a new song by Michael Kiwanuka, produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys, who also played on the track. Michael recently teamed up with Auerbach in London to record his song "Lasan," the B-Side to his new single "I'm Getting Ready." The single will be featured on Michael's debut album, Home Again, which is set for release on March 12 in the UK and sometime in the summer in the US.

    Speaking about the track, Auerbach said: "It was great - really quick. We went and did it really quick at Ray Davies' studio. It was nice. Obviously his voice is amazing and the songs are cool. The production on that stuff is great too - I like what the guy is doing."

    The song is ripe for a lazy day, slow and steady number, one that could easily serve as the background music to a goodbye scene in a film.

    What did you think of Michael Kiwanuka's "Lasan?" He was the winner of the BBC's Sound of 2012 Poll.
