Osibisa – Boyhood EP – release. Earlier this year the acclaimed film producer, Richard Linklater, and his production staff approached Rob Corich for music for Linklater’s latest movie Boyhood. This ground breaking movie was shot over twelve years using the same actors, including Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette.
A Flying Elephant/Red Steel version of Osibisa’s hit song, Sunshine Day, was chosen for use in the film although it was not used on the movie soundtrack album.
Thinking it was time for Sunshine Day to be heard in all its glory by a new generation, Rob and Teddy Osei, decided to re-master the song and introduce it as a single.
The single rapidly mutated into an EP and here we are seven tracks later (almost an album for the price of an EP).
The EP can be pre-ordered on iTunes Worldwide from August 1st.
