Petite Noir (aka half-Congolese, half-Angolan, Cape Town-residing artist Yannick Ilunga) released his debut album, La Vie Est Belle / Life Is Beautiful, in 2015 via Domino. Now he has announced a new mini-album, La Maison Noir / The Black House, and shared its first single, “Blame Fire.” La Maison Noir / The Black House is due out October 5 via Roya. Bellow is “Blame Fire,” followed by the tracklist and cover art.

Ilunga had this to say about the single in a press release: “‘Blame Fire’ is a phrase that I made up, meaning ‘Thank God.’ I poetically referenced times in history that God showed up as ‘fire’ i.e. the burning bush in the story of Moses and comparing that to the passion, the drive that we all have inside of ourselves to be successful in life. So basically, don’t blame me, Blame Fire for all that I have. In short, it means, all glory to God.”
