Moses Sumney released his debut full-length album, Aromanticism, last September via Jagjaguwar. It was our #1 Debut Album of 2017 and one of our overall Top 100 Albums of 2017. Today he has released a brand new three-song EP, Black in Deep Red, 2014, via Jagjaguwar. Previously he shared its first single, "Rank & File" (which was one of our Songs of the Week). Now you can stream the whole EP, including two previously unheard songs. Check it out below, followed by Sumney's upcoming tour dates.

Sumney had this to say about the EP in a previous press release: "Black in Deep Red, 2014 was ignited by the first and last time I attended a protest. It was in the fall of 2014, after a grand jury decided not to charge the offending officer in the Mike Brown murder, delivering the verdict just in time for them to get home for Thanksgiving. I felt like a camouflaged outsider at the protest, like an anthropologist performing a study amongst his own kind. I took to the mountains soon after that and wrote these songs, wondering if power was a transferable device that could change hands through the vocalizing of unrest. The EP's title is inspired by a 1957 Mark Rothko painting by the same name."
