Video Preview Upcoming Witness Uganda Album With New Music Video

The studio album with performances from Griffin Matthews, Emma Hunton, Cynthia Erivo, and more drops next month.

Sony Masterworks Broadway will release a studio cast recording for Matt Gould and Griffin Matthews' Witness Uganda (An American Musical) February 11. Preview "Fall," sung by Emma Hunton and Matthews, in a newly released music video above. The album's lead single was released in November 2021.

Also featured on the upcoming album are Emmy, Grammy, and Tony Award winner Cynthia Erivo, Grammy winner Ledisi, and stage-and-screen stars Nicolette Robinson, and Kristolyn Lloyd, among others.

Inspired by true events, Witness Uganda documents Matthews' journey on a volunteer mission to Uganda, during which he builds an unlikely bond with a ragtag group of teenage students, discovering community where they least expect it.

The work had its world premiere at American Repertory Theater in 2014, followed by an Off-Broadway run (then titled Invisible Thread) at Second Stage in 2015. A revised version of the musical directed by Matthews and reverting to its original title played Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in 2019.
