SANYA N’KANTA RELEASES “HIGHWAY ROAD” ON AUGUST 27 FROM HIS UPCOMING NEW ALBUM
LOVE IS FREE OUT LATER THIS YEAR
“an indication that we can expect some more amazing singles this year from Sanya, and ‘Love is Free” is an album that you most certainly will want to have on your radar”
– Folk N Rock
A blend of rock, soul, funk, and style Sanya N’kanta continues to forge his path outside of the genre-ruled box. N’kanta releases his second song of the summer, “Highway Road,” on August 27. Stream “Highway Road” here: https://lnk.to/highway-road
When asked about the song, N’kanta explains, “It’s about a deep desire to live in the moment with extreme spontaneity. It is easy to become shackled by routine and plans. Sometimes we need to jump in the car and drive with no destination in mind,” says N’kanta.
“a true piece of art that gave us hope in music and creativity again. Going from rock to funk, passing by reggae, he unveils a unique and sincere artistic recipe, as well as powerful energy” – The Further
N’kanta paved the way for “Highway Road” with the July release of the song and video for “Easy Baby.” About the song Dancing About Architecture said, “If the family tree of contemporary music is one where blues begat rock and roll, where soul and funk are first cousins and dance music is the strange nephew lost in his own world, then this single is a long-overdue family reunion.” The video for “Easy Baby” garnered over 1 million in less than two months of its release.

Deemed by Fresh Hip-Hop and R&B a “Diamond in the Rough,” the Kingston, Jamaica-born, and North Carolina-based N’kanta has cultivated a career that’s allowed him the freedom to explore a bevy of genres, sometimes within one song. His previous album, The Counterfeit Revival (2020) is a swirl of sounds that grapples with challenging but timely issues of race, immigration, and the black experience. It was a potent, political-themed purging that cleared the way for the personal explorations on his rock-infused 2021 EP These Are The Days.
Within his songs, the genre-blurring artist and producer shares his perspective, his gratitude, his artistry, and his soulful pop-rock hooks. His next song and video for “The Tide” will be out on September 24, followed by the release of his new album Love Is Free, co-produced by Chuck Alkazian (Tantric, Madonna, Soundgarden, The Romantics) out later this year.
