Under The Sun: Joan As Police Woman about her collab with Tony Allen And Dave Okumu
'The Solution Is Restless' is the newly released collaborative record from Joan As Police Woman, Dave Okumu and the late drummer and Afrobeat pioneer Tony Allen. After first collaborating on a live performance of a Nina Simone track, the trio recorded together in November 2019, laying down the tracks that would eventually make up 'The Solution Is Restless'. Calling in from London, Joan chats about how she constructed the record from these tracks while death hung over NYC. With most of the lyrics written in the wake of the death of Tony Allen and Joan’s close collaborator Hal Wilner, the record reflects so much of the tumult of the last two years.
