Just today, BBE released the 14-song Mshini Wam, and simultaneously hooked up The FADER with a full preview of the album, which is available for 48 hours here. The latest video to surface from that record, a piece for the third single off of Wam, "War on Words," also premiered on that website today. You can check out that video here.
