Moses Sumney has announced a new EP titled Black in Deep Red, 2014. The project is set to be out on August 10th via Jagjaguwar. The title is inspired by the 1957 Mark Rothko painting. Sumney has shared the first track on the EP, “Rank & File.” Listen below.
“Black in Deep Red, 2014 was ignited by the first and last time I attended a protest,” Sumney said in a statement. “It was in the fall of 2014, after a grand jury decided not to charge the offending officer in the Mike Brown murder, delivering the verdict just in time for them to get home for Thanksgiving. I felt like a camouflaged outsider at the protest, like an anthropologist performing a study amongst his own kind.”
