Lowkey returns with the animated visual for the title track of his new LP ‘Soundtrack To The Struggle 2′. The thought-provoking song features sampled vocals from the famed historian, political activist Noam Chomsky. Lowkey takes some ample time to speak on the global power structures, the banks, and elites for a lack of empathy and social conscious over a gloomy, gripping backdrop.
The visuals also help accentuate the theme of the song as Lowkey blasts the short term-ism of the global elites and multinationals and their backing of burning fossil fuels for short term profits, with a complete lack of looking long term take care of the planet. The track also acts as a call to collectivize fellow activists to help fight against oppression in many regions around the world.
‘Soundtrack To The Struggle 2′ acts as somewhat of a milestone in rap and hip hop, as Lowkey opts to feature fellow truth-tellers and free-thinkers; Noam Chomsky, Ken Loach and Frankie Boyle over a more traditionally musical approach to features. That said, it does feature musical talents such as Maverick Sabre, Kaia and longtime collaborator and vocalist Mai Khalil. On week of release, he also dropped 2 lead singles alongside some hard hitting visuals for 2 of the standout tracks from the album ‘Islamophobic Lullabies’ and ‘Long Live Palestine Pt. 3’ which features Maverick Sabre.
Previously released tracks from the album ‘Ghosts of Grenfell (feat Mai Khalil)’ and ‘Ahmed’, have garnered millions of views on YouTube and Facebook with support coming from Lilly Allen, Russell Brand, Frankie Boyle, JME and many other influential figures. ‘Ghosts Of Grenfell’ was featured heavily on BBC Radio 4’s World At One where Lowkey has been interviewed several times, whilst MP for Kensington, Emma Dent Coad described him as a “poet laureate for Grenfell Tower.”
