Common Black America Again Album Set To Hit Stores Nov. 4th
Chicago bred emcee, Common is set to release his most politically charged album to date right around Election Day 2016. The new album album from Common Black America Again will be available on November 4th, the weekend before one of the most controversial elections in recent memory. The album is in the same vein as the last time we saw Common, when he released the track “Glory” with John Legend, a track that earned him Grammy, a Golden Globe and an Academy Award.
Black America Again, Common’s 11th solo album comes 2 years after Common’s last album, Nobody’s Smiling. The lead single and title track, “Black America Again” features legend Stevie Wonder. The single is out now.
“I wrote this song in March,” Common said of “Black America Again” recently, “and unfortunately it was as relevant then as it is now. As it could have been in the 1960s or 1800s or any era that we have existed in this country. “Black America Again” is centered in the injustices that black people have experienced and endured since we arrived on the shores of America. ‘Black America Again’ is a call to action. It is a song about black love, black strength, black justice, black resistance, black resilience, black empowerment, and black people.”
