“It’s not the way that you look, it’s the way that you shook,” Michael Franti sings in the first single from his forthcoming release The Sound of Sunshine. While that disc will hit later this summer, two songs will appear as singles in advance of the album. “Shake It,” which features guest vocals by Lady Saw, will be released digitally on Tuesday, while the title track will follow two weeks later.

Michael Franti & Spearhead who will tour extensively in support of The Sound of Sunshine, are in Ashville, NC tonight at the Orange Peel.
