Adrian Younge Rebels Against Bigotry In Latest Single “Revolutionize”

Los Angeles-based multi-instrumentalist, composer, and producer Adrian Younge shares “Revolutionize,” the latest single from the upcoming album featuring music and spoken word The American Negro, out February 26th via Jazz Is Dead. “Revolutionize” follows the album’s widely praised lead single and title track “The American Negro,” released earlier this month. “‘Revolutionize’ is a broadcast amplified by the struggle; a rebellion against America’s bigotry and complacency towards the plight of Black America,” notes Younge. “We are beautiful and the harmony of our heritage is the soul of The American Negro — ‘Revolutionize how we see our lives.’” 

The American Negro sees Younge sharing an unapologetic critique detailing the systemic and malevolent psychology that afflicts people of color. It is part of his multi-multimedia project released in conjunction with Black History Month — his most ambitious and deeply personal project to-date. To better explain the intricacies of the album’s message, he will also release the four-part, Amazon Music-exclusive podcast Invisible Blackness and short film T.A.N., which will be available on the Amazon Music mobile app and Prime Video.

Listen to all episodes of Invisible Blackness released to-date, including the just-released episode featuring a conversation between Adrian and Digable Planets’ Ladybug Mecca where they discuss the power behind the black female voice in culture’s past, present and future:
