‘Beautiful Life’ will serve as the title music for Orlando von Einsiedel’s new documentary Convergence: Courage In A Crisis, which is out on Netflix today (October 12).

Recorded in London alongside producer St Francis Hotel, Kiwanuka said of ‘Beautiful Life’: “In this song I wanted to focus on the feeling that there’s a real strength in the human spirit when you try to look for beauty even in difficult situations.

“Of course, in some situations that becomes more and more difficult. But I just wanted to ponder on that and wonder what life would be like if I lived it like that.

“Ultimately whatever people feel from hearing the song is ok with me. But what I was trying to emit through the music was a feeling of defiance. A feeling of strength through adversity.”

Kiwanuka will headline Green Man Festival next summer and is set to provide support to Liam Gallagher during one of his sold-out shows at Knebworth.
