Published Jul 21, 2016A Tribe Called Red just announced their We Are the Halluci Nation, but they are already showing off a new track.
Via Zone Lowe's Beat 1 show, the group have released their "R.E.D.," which comes sporting features by Narcy, Black Bear and Yasiin Bey.
In a statement, ATCR had this to say about the new song:
The Halluci Nation has no barriers, it sees no borders and their operatives are everywhere. Yasiin Bey is an allie of the Halluci Nation who has been unjustly detained in Johannesburg, South Africa by the Alie-Nation. Narcy is one of the Guardians of the Halluci Nation and he has been given the job of helping to free Yasiin and lead him to the Halluci Nation territory. We are of earth and sky. The Halluci Nation.
Narcy added: "I think it is the first time in history where you have an African, an Iraqi and the Indigenous of Canada all on one song. It's an important breaking in culture; we are coming together to counter the narratives built around the history of our communities and showing the power of our people combined. It feels like the beginning of something new and old; the rebirth after many injustices."
As previously reported, We Are the Halluci Nation arrives September 16 via Pirates Blend. The group have lined up a bunch of tour dates in support of the new album, and you can see those here.
For now, though, listen to "R.E.D." below.
