The track is part of a Tongue Fu project – produced by Chris Redmond – which was supported by Arts Council England’s COVID-19 Emergency Response Funds.
We commissioned Leeds-based artist Saifur Rehmaan Manzoor-Khan to create the illustration for the artwork, and Liz Counsell edited the video. If you’re interested in featuring us on a site or in a publication, the press release is here.
The single is priced at £5, with an option to pay more if you can afford to. It’ll remain exclusively on our Bandcamp site until the New Year, to maximise our revenue. The Bandcamp purchase includes a HD copy of the video and also a PDF booklet containing the lyrics and sleeve notes.
Huge thank you to everybody that’s already supported the release. Black Minds Matter UK is an increasingly vital cause, so every retweet or share makes a difference and obviously every purchase means the world!
We were dead excited to partner up with Tongue Fu (again) to present a special Facebook Live gig on Thursday 12 November. The gig featured live performances from Amyra León and Chris Redmond, as well as the world première of the ‘Birds‘ video.
The 22nd of our Insta sessions features Chris Redmond. Chris is a poet, musician, performer and producer. A regular at music and literature festivals, he’s been featured on BBC Radio 1, 2 and 4; XFM; CBBC; and Sky Arts. Chris’s debut collection Let The Pig Out is published by Burning Eye.
