Kanye West has released a new song, “Wash Us In the Blood” along with an accompanying video including imagery from recent anti-racism protests.
The new track, the first released from the born-again rapper’s planned 10th album “God’s Country,” features lyrics with heavily biblical overtones, in line with his musical turn to Christianity in recent years.
The song appears to refer to recent civil unrest over persistent police killings of black Americans, also mentioning mass incarceration and alluding to endemic poverty.
The video includes footage of Breonna Taylor — a black woman who police shot dead after forcibly entering her home on a no-knock warrant — as well as scenes from recent protests over police brutality and the death of George Floyd and West’s Sunday Service rehearsals.
