Songhoy Blues have announced their biggest UK headline show to date, a new EP and a deluxe version of their brilliant debut album, Music In Exile.

They will play The Roundhouse in London on Saturday 21st May next year, and the deluxe version of the album is out on Friday November 6th. It features three extra tracks, all re-interpretations of tracks by some of the group’s key influences, which will also be released as a stand alone 12″ EP on the same day.

Here is their re-versioning of the Clash’s classic Should I Stay Or Should I Go, which features new lyrics addressing the difficult decision confronting refugees around the world – a literal “Should I Stay?” and suffer persecution at home or “Should I Go?” and face potential social injustice and prejudice.
