Bassist-vocalist Miles Mosley has dropped the song “Brother,” his first new solo release in over two years.
The California native’s triumphant new single soars with dramatic horns, a thunderous backing choir and hand claps. “Damn the disappoint, damn the same slave wage / When what we got all but fades away / We fumble and fight through these modern days / Rich men never change,” Mosley sings.
“One of my favorite and first songs written for this [forthcoming] album,” Mosley said in a press statement. “‘Brother’ champions the survivor not as someone who scavenges an existence but someone who was built for the very purpose of surviving said existence.”
“Brother” will appear on Mosley’s as-yet-untitled fifth studio album, due out next year via Verve Records. His last solo album, Uprising, came out in 2017.
