Nico & Vinz Announce U.S. Debut Album ‘Black Star Elephant’

By Marissa G. Muller

Nico & Vinz, the African-Norwegian duo behind “Am I Wrong” — an uplifting keep-on-dreaming song that went to No. 1 in multiple countries — has announced their first U.S. album, Black Star Elephant.

Their full-length will arrive Sept. 16 on Warner Bros. Records and, of course, includes their hit single.

It also features 13 tracks and seven interludes, which, according to a press release, “pay homage to their parents’ nationalities.”

In addition to their album, Nico & Vinz have also recorded a new song dubbed “Find a Way.” The track was inspired by the upcoming film The Good Lie, a modern take on the Lost Boys of Sudan that follows a group of young Sudanese refugees who escape their country’s civil war, landing in America. The film’s co-star Emmanuel Jal — who plays opposite of Reese Witherspoon — is featured on the song, which will be released with the film’s soundtrack on Sept. 30.
