Temenik Electric is enlisting a big world music name to work on their new album. The Algerian rockers will follow up their successful 2013 debut Ouesh Hada? with a new album produced by Justin Adams, who worked with the likes of Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant and Mali bluesmen Tinariwen.

“This is very exciting for us because of his pedigree” said lead singer Mehdi Haddjeri from Morocco’s Mawazine Festival. “He has been busy touring but when we emailed him some songs to listen to he said he enjoyed them so much that he will make time to produce the album.”

Haddjeri expects the album to be out before the end of the year.

The Mawazine Festival runs until June 6.
