Sudan Archives has dropped a new song, ‘Selfish Soul’, alongside an accompanying video. The track, which follows March’s ‘Home Maker’, was co-written with Dexter Story and Ben Dickey. Check out the Trey Lyons–directed visual below.
According to Sudan Archives, ‘Selfish Soul’ is “about women and the celebration of hair. It’s about representation of different hair textures and embracing all colors and textures of it.” She continued: “I feel like there’s an American standard of what beautiful hair is, and I wanted to show in this video that’s not what all beauty is; to showcase different hairstyles and different types of women and their hair. I was inspired by India.Arie’s “I Am Not My Hair,” one of the first songs I heard about this subject. She talks about extensions and weaves and natural hair and nappy hair, and that she’s not her hair; she won’t conform to the comparisons that would come up if you had a weave or sew-in or natural hair or Afro—that doesn’t represent her.”
