These days, if you win the BBC Sound Of poll, it seems like you're in everyone's faces for years. Recent recipients Sam Smith, Years & Years and Jack Garratt have been almost unavoidable, but it was a little different with Michael Kiwanuka back in 2012. Sure, his debut album Home Again was a top five hit. It was just an altogether more subtle kind of success for the British folk-soulman.

Four years since that first album, Kiwanuka's back and making rather more noise. Black Man In A White World has a lovely funk about it as well as a bit of bite – think Marvin Gaye in his politically conscious early-1970s phase – and promises much for second album Love & Hate, due at the end of May. Watch the video (and hear the song) below.
