G&D PREMIERE NEW SINGLE P.A.L. VIA STEREOGUM
GEORGIA ANNE MULDROW CONFIRMED FOR BLACK WOODSTOCK 50TH ANNIVERSARY AUGUST 17 IN NYC
BLACK LOVE & WAR OUT AUGUST 9 ON SOMEOTHASHIP CONNECT / EONE MUSIC
Toronto, ON – July 24, 2019 – Today, G&D, the recording moniker of Georgia Anne Muldrow and Dudley Perkins aka Declaime, has shared the new single, P.A.L., premiering via Stereogum. P.A.L. appears on the upcoming full-length, Black Love & War, due out August 9 on SomeOthaShip Connect / eOne Music, and is available for preorder here.
Produced by Georgia Anne Muldrow, the song soulfully captures the essence of Black Love & War, which celebrates 'black love' and the unity of the black family, while also delving into many of the socio-economic and racial issues that still have them at 'war.' As Dudley Perkins puts it, "We have to be stronger as a unit. The male and female. The king and queen actually gotta come together during this war. Black love is essential in these post-apocalyptic times.” P.A.L. (Post Apocalyptic Love) is now available here.
G&D announced Black Love & War this past June with the release of first single, Where I’m From, (produced by Mike & Keys) followed by a video for the song directed by Charles Sicuso which recently premiered via Okayplayer.
Ahead of the August 9 release of Black Love & War, the duo recently performed at The Broad in Los Angeles on July 17 as part of the first of two Black Fire Sessions, in celebration of their landmark exhibition Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power 1963-1983. Georgia Anne Muldrow is next confirmed to appear at the Black Woodstock 50th Anniversary on August 17 at Marcus Garvey Park in Harlem, NYC, followed by a performance at this year’s BRIC JazzFest Music Marathon taking place from October 24-26 in Brooklyn, New York.
“Where I’m From pairs Georgia’s soaring voice and Dudley’s booming bars over a neck-snapping beat.” - Brooklyn Vegan
“With airy vocalizations and a soft jazzy feel, Where I’m From excavates the duo’s origins in both a historical and personal context.” – Paste
“Black Love & War is about the unity of the black family as is largely produced by Muldrow. Its lead single ‘Where I’m From’ is definitely worth checking out. This one’s a bit more acoustic compared to Overload, and has a smoldering, earthy feel. While giving Muldrow’s full-bodied vocals a place to shine, it still features some of those digital top-line trills that serve as a reminder of the track’s modernity. Along with Perkins’ relaxed yet rhythmic verses, a transportive atmospheric synth pad swirls horizontally. A simple drum beat maintains throughout as Muldrow’s gospel ad libs soar.” - Stereogum
“‘Where I’m From’ is a flawless introduction as the duo effortlessly showcase their style.”
Where I’m From is available here.
