Ethel Cain Unveils New Song ‘من النهر,’ (‘From the River’) for Palestine

    Ethel Cain has released a new song on Souncloud, ‘من النهر’, which translates to ‘From the River’, for Palestine. Listen to it below.

    On Instagram, Cain wrote: “30,000 Palestinians have been killed under Israel’s occupation since October 2023 and countless thousands more since the occupation began 75 years ago. Over a third of them were children. While millions of Americans watched the Super Bowl, our government funded the assault on Raffah, which was supposed to be the last refuge for Palestinians in Gaza. The United States government is complicit in a genocide, which is certainly nothing new for us as a country. There is no way to spin this that doesn’t make this a crime against humanity. The least we can do as individuals is exactly what Palestinians have asked of us; that we not turn a blind eye, and remember exactly what has happened and continues to happen to the people of Palestine. This song is meant as a prayer for them. God be with every Palestinian man, woman, and child.”

    Cain’s debut LP, Preacher’s Daughter, came out in 2022. Last year, she contributed backing vocals to Vyva Melinkolya’s ‘222’.
