Alicia Keys has shared a new track called ‘Perfect Way to Die’. Written and produced by Sebastian Kole, the song deals with police brutality and systemic racism. Check it out below.
“Of course there is no perfect way to die,” Keys explained in a statement. “This phrase doesn’t even make sense but that’s what makes the title so powerful and heartbreaking because so many have died unjustly.”
“It’s written from the point of view of the mother whose child has been murdered because of the system of racism that looks at Black life as unworthy,” she continued. “We all know none of these innocent lives should have been taken due to the culture of police violence.”
The singer previously shared ‘Good Job’ back in April, a track dedicated to those “on the frontlines at the hospitals, balancing work, family and homeschool teaching, delivering mail, packages, or food, or facing other personal difficulties because of COVID-19.”
Her upcoming LP, ALICIA, was scheduled for release in March, but has since been indefinitely postponed.
