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. Now he has announced a brand new three-song EP, Black in Deep Red, 2014, and shared its first single, “Rank & File.” The Black in Deep Red, 2014 EP is due out soon, next Friday August 10, via Jagjaguwar. Check out “Rank & File” below, followed by the EP’s tracklist and cover art, as well as Sumney’s upcoming tour dates.

Sumney had this to say about the EP in a 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.”
