A couple of weeks in the past, Bartees Unusual returned with the announcement of his new album Farm To Desk. We’ve already heard a pair songs from it, together with “Heavy Coronary heart” and “Cosigns.” Right this moment, he’s again with one other one.
Unusual’s newest known as “Maintain The Line.” Right here’s what he needed to say about it:
I keep in mind watching George Floyd’s daughter discuss in regards to the dying of her father and considering wow — what a tragic introduction to Black American life for this younger individual. It was painful to observe her develop up in that second, like all Black children ultimately do.
“Maintain the Line” was written over the course of three days throughout that first pandemic summer time. Via this track I used to be making an attempt to make sense of what was taking place within the US, my neighborhood, and my group at that second. Throughout the marches folks have been making an attempt to cease the bleeding, locked arm in arm, doing all the things they might to carry the road.
