    Summary

    "Love is harder than war," says A&M/ Octone recording artist K'NAAN, explaining the direction he takes on his new album, Country, God Or The Girl. I've had the chance to write about my experiences in a difficult and violent life. But when the suffering and the pain is something that comes from within me, it's harder to react and to write about that."

    With his new songs - including the album's irresistible, empathetic first single, "Is There Anybody Out There?", featuring Nelly Furtado - the Somalian-born, Canadian-based singer and MC turns his attention to the most univeral emotions and experiences of them all: the personal relationships which everyone struggles with and rejoices in. At the same time, though, he never loses the greater sense of the world that has defined him as an artist. Country, God Or The Girl, K'NAAN says, marks his attempt to address "the internal wars, rather than the external ones, which I'd been preoccupied with on my previous albums."

    The album is K'NAAN's first full length work since his multi-platinum global smash single, '"Wavin Flag." After a remixed version of the song was selected as Coca-Cola's theme song for the 2010 FIFA World Cup campaign, the song reached #1 on iTunes in 18 countries around the world.

    "'Wavin Flag' made me more confident in how I approach music," says K'NAAN. "No one believed that song could reach so many people or become such a phenomenon, which made me doubt myself a bit, because I really thought it could touch people. So now any reaction to a song of mine doesn't bother me, because I think it's more likely that people really do hear it the way I'm hearing it."

    The enormous success of the single opened up countless doors for K'NAAN, as reflected by the caliber and range of guests who appear on County, God Or The Girl, from Nas on "Nothing to Lose" to Bono on "Bulletproof Pride," plus appearances by Will.I.Am, Keith Richards and B.o.B. But it was the FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour, which traveled to 86 countries, that the singer claims made the greatest impact on his music.
