Lead vocalist Natalli Rize and her reggae and dubwise Blue King Brown comrades are set to release their powerful third album, Born Free, on November 7th and their latest single and video are already catching fire.
“All Nations” is an uplifting anthemic call out to all people worldwide to reclaim our freedom and to make what BKB calls “music for this movement, for the battle and the fight for People over profits, Justice over Greed, Freedom over Slavery”.
“‘All Nations’ at its core is about people power”, says Rize, “Calling out to All People from All Nations to recognize their power and reclaim it, use it, assert it in these times of shifting consciousness, a time of discontent with the current world system and paradigm”. To this end, the band dedicated and premiered the song in support of the self-determination movement to Free West Papua.
BKB have built a huge audience for their socially conscious and politically engaged music in support of Indigenous rights and global struggles for liberation. And they’ve stepped up every aspect of their production and songwriting this time around: Born Free was recorded at the legendary Tuff Gong studios in Kingston, Jamaica, Sing Sing Studios in Melbourne, and Blue King Brown’s own studio in Melbourne, Australia.
Capturing the sound of the struggle and the essence of what art and activism can do to inspire change, “All Nations” will have you waving the flag of freedom and singing along with a raised fist.
