“Cape Town To Cairo,” Featuring Fireboy DML, Mádé Kuti, Asa, And Others, Is Released By PJ Morton

The innovative album “Cape Town to Cairo” by PJ Morton was recorded during the course of a 30-day voyage throughout Africa.

This American musician and singer-songwriter’s project, which is available now via Morton Records/EMPIRE, has the same transforming power on Morton that Graceland did on Paul Simon.

The five-time Grammy winner was inspired to create an album in less than a month, so she set off on this journey with no pre-written songs or lyrics.

Morton visited many new sites during his travels, which brought him from Cape Town and Johannesburg to Lagos, Accra, Cairo, and back to South Africa.

Looking back, he says he chose to write and record everything on the continent in an effort to convey the unfiltered feelings and diversity of culture he witnessed.

This strategy combined pop, jazz, gospel, R&B, soul, and other genres, all influenced by the many sounds of Africa, to create a lively fusion of sounds.

With its distinctive presentation, Morton’s Cape Town to Cairo is a musical portrait of the African diaspora.

In the meantime, PJ Morton has disclosed that this fall, his memoir—which spans the entirety of his career—will be published. The book, titled Saturday Night, Sunday Morning, will be published by Worthy Publishing, a branch of Hachette Book Group, on November 12.

In this book, Morton explores the intricacies and junctions between race and culture, music and faith, as well as the difficulties associated with identification and self-expression.
