Acoustic band Edgar ndi Davis is finalising its fifth album set for release later in the year.
The album comes seven years after the duo of Wazelezeka fame dropped its last album Energy Saver.
In an interview, Davis Njobvu said it is time to drop a new album after a long time.
“We have not yet decided on the title of the album but most likely it will be Dzidude as that is one of the songs in the album.
“We have taken our time to come up with this album and we feel time is ripe now to do it,” he said.
The band is known for using ambiguous terms while playfully tackling serious subjects.
“As a band, we tackle any issues and we do not fear any particular area as we have our own ways of talking about things. People should always listen to our music with a bit of discernment to understand the hidden meanings,” he said.
While the release date is not definite due to Covid-19, the duo is set to finish recording by July end. Other than the launch, Edgar ndi Davis plans to promote the album.
In a separate interview, the album’s producer, Layison Njati alias Anko Layi said the duo has maintained their style in terms of both production and the messaging.
“Fans will notice some changes as the world keeps changing as well,” he said. Anko Layi said so far they have recorded nine songs.
“Some are unfinished while others just need mixing. At this stage, we can’t tell how many songs will be on the album,” said the producer who has recorded and produced all the albums by the duo.
Arguably one of the country’s best acoustic bands, Edgar ndi Davis’ other albums are 2008’s Dzubwera Mochedwa, Musamabwere Kumudzi in 2005 while their first album Wazelezeka was released in 2000.
