Moor Mother Announces New Album ‘The Great Bailout’, Enlists Lonnie Holley and Raia Was for New Song

    Moor Mother has announced her ninth studio album, The Great Bailout, which is out March 8 via ANTI-.  The follow-up to 2022’s Jazz Codes features contributions from Lonnie Holley, Mary Lattimore, Vijay Ayer, Angel Bat Dawid, Sistazz of the Nitty Gritty, Aaron Dilloway, and more. Below, listen to the new single ‘GUILTY’, featuring Lonnie Holley, Mary Lattimore, and Raia Was, and check out the album’s cover artwork (by Sydney Cain) and tracklist.

    “Research is a major part of my work, and researching history – particularly African history, philosophy and time – is a major interest,” Camae Ayewa said in a statement about her music and its focus on the effects of British colonialism. “Europe and Africa have a very intimate and brutal relationship throughout time. I’m interested in exploring that relationship of colonialism and liberation, in this case in Great Britain.”

    “Displacement and its effects are not discussed enough,” Ayewa added. “The PTSD of displacement should be a focus, and as we have the opportunity to learn about things happening in the world, we also have the opportunity to learn about ourselves. We’ve been through so many different acts of systematic violence.”
