    This is the story of Tim Maia, possibly the greatest (and craziest) soul singer you never heard of. Infamous in Brazil, Tim was a soul grenade that exploded in the 70s. He single handedly revolutionized Brazilian popular music and had the best time ever doing it. His story is one of humourous excess in every way imaginable and there’s something for all the family: drugs, women, money, guns and even a UFO cult thrown in. He REALLY lived the dream, always with a smile.

    This animated film has been created in a close collaboration between SuperHeroes Amsterdam, ShopAround and record label Luaka Bop, to celebrate Tim’s album launch and introduce the world to a soul superstar. After a decade of legal wrangling, Luaka Bop’s Nobody Can Live Forever: The Existential Soul of Tim Maia is a fifteen track survey of Maia's 1970s recordings, completely remastered and packed with the sweetest warmest sun drenched soul you can imagine.

    So don your white robes, drop a tab or two and get wild for Tim Maia’s first big worldwide release. VIVA TIM!
