Wyclef Jean’s Album ‘Carnival III: The Fall and Rise of a Refugee’ Is Available for Streaming
Wyclef Jean has released his new project Carnival III: The Fall and Rise of a Refugee, his first full-length album in over eight years. The LP is available for streaming on both Apple Music and Spotify. The 12-song collection features guest appearances from Emeli Sandé, the Knocks, Lunch Money Lewis and Supah Mario.
The recording also comes as Wyclef is celebrating the 20th anniversary of his debut album, The Carnival and the 10th anniversary of The Carnival II. In addition to the album, the former Fugees member released a new video for his song "Borrowed Time." Wyclef used sounds recorded by the Juno satellite, which has been orbiting Jupiter and taking picture and recording sounds, to create the track.
"I worked together with Scott Bolton who developed this, so I got to geek out a bit," Wyclef explains (via Complex). "The craziest part for me was that no human being had heard these particular sounds yet. I freaked out when I heard them. To me, we are all vibrations of light and sound. I've done a lot of humbling things in my career, including working closely with Michael Jackson. I wish MJ was here to see us create songs with sonics from the Universe."
Carnival III is more than just an album," he continues. "It’s a celebration of what I love about music: discovery, diversity and artistry for art’s sake."
