Brent Faiyaz has dropped a new song called “Eden.”
On the soulful track, the singer makes a number of references to police brutality and the Bible, as he wonders why God doesn’t simply make the world a better place. “Bless, oh, Garden of Eden / Arrested for treason / Only you himself could help me now / You held me down, you can’t change that now / Police, ain’t no policin’ to my needment / Clear the sound of faith,” he croons.
The song will appear on the upcoming Music for the Movement/Black History Always Vol 2 compilation, which will also feature the previously released “Wake Up Everybody” by Tobe Nwigwe. The compilation is part of an ongoing project between The Undefeated—ESPN’s content initiative exploring race and culture—and Hollywood Records.
