EXCLUSIVE VIDEO PREMIERE: Andy Pfeiler - Space Xpress

Written by 

A day ahead of the official release, we can exclusively present Swedish funkster, Andy Pfeiler’s new single/video - Space XPress.

The 'always cool' singer proves soul, funk & hip-hop runs in the family as he's joined by his daughter Astrid Pfeiler on backing vocals, and together leave this planet towards new destinations aboard Space Xpress.

Away from gorgeous beaches and swamps, Andy has been busy and recently produced Kaah's new EP JUNGL, which he also participates in as a musician.

Frequently on tour with Nils Landgren Funk Unit, Andy will be playing throughout the summer and autumn across Europe and recording on Landgren's new album.

At the end of June, he'll travel to Nairobi to continue his charity work together with Doctors Without Borders (Läkare utan gränser) in the Funk For Life project. You can read more about this here

Space XPress is out 19 May and Andy's sure to deliver more funky goodness on his new album - Brain Boogie, due 15 September. 

We better get our spacesuits ready!

    Funk and soul music has always been a genre known for carrying a message, one which if not always overtly political can often be termed social commentary. Its roots in the race struggles of 60’s American led artists such as Marvin Gaye, Cutis Mayfield and Sly and The Family Stone to become narrators of those troubled times and that relationship between the politics and the music remains ingrained.

    The Nils Landgren Funk Unit sideman’s fifth album has plenty to say about what we are doing to the planet and what we are doing to each other but does so in a way that exudes hope for the future, brims with optimism and never preaches. No soapboxes where harmed in the making of this record.
