Sticking to the theme of the previous single, Für Svenja, I Know (I’m OK) is rooted in the beautiful sentiment of friendship and connection. About the making of this song Sonny Johns aka The Rail Abandon says: “After writing this I couldn't find a melody I liked, but it left me with a feeling I couldn't put into words; one that reminded me of the feeling I got from the song Village Kids by Samantha Whates. So I asked her to write something.“

Samantha is a longtime friend and collaborator of Sonny’s and is also his band-mate in the sensational project Pica Pica. Her voice conveys a message of positivity, full of life, energy and strength, despite living in a world where borders and limitations are still the norm – and definitely a struggle.

This statement album, recorded in North Ghana, in the town which gave the record its name, Kalba, has already received the attention of Tom Ravenscroft, Cerys Matthews and Huey Morgan on BBC 6 Music.
