Hear five songs from Idris Elba's 'mi Mandela' album
Actor Idris Elba took on the role of curator for his upcoming album, mi Mandela, dedicated to the late Nelson Mandela.
Elba played the South African president in 2013’s Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, and was inspired to make the album while filming in Johannesburg. Both South African and British artists, including James Black and Mumford and Sons, sing the 11 tracks, written by Elba himself.
Five songs from the album are now streaming on Elba’s SoundCloud, and Mi Mandela comes out Nov. 24.
