Georgia Anne Muldrow has announced a new album, as well as shared its lead single.
Titled Mama, You Can Bet!, the forthcoming album is the third Muldrow is doing under the moniker Jyoti, a name she was given by the late Alice Coltrane. Like her previous Jyoti albums — Denderah and Ocotea — You Can Bet! is a more jazz-focused musical endeavor, as is evident in its lead single, “This Walk,” which Okayplayer is premiering.
Described by Muldrow as how “violence can both ignite and snuff out a voice,” “This Walk” is a short and somber track that finds Muldrow offering a reflective, spoken word delivery alongside wistful piano and harp.
“The silence teases me far away / Because the violence I see articulates / Because the violence I see articulates,” she sings toward the song’s end, the repeated phrase resonant and timely, considering the current injustices that are taking place in the United States, and how people are responding to them.
Along with “This Walk,” Muldrow has also released the b-side “Cowrie Waltz,” a bluesy lounge track that rides coolly and ends with a distant shredding guitar solo.
Mama, You Can Bet! is due for release on August 28, 2020 via eOne Music and Muldrow’s own SomeOthaShip Connect. A track list for the album can be viewed below. A 7″ single version of “This Walk,” along with “Cowrie Waltz,” can be pre-ordered via Bandcamp.
