This is the latest track from his upcoming new album, Space Beyond The Solar System due out digitally on December 9th via 22nd Century Sound. The song features legendary saxophonist Archie Shepp.
This thoughtful and superb track conjures up a dreamy vibe that is an enlightening layered musical combination of jazz and hip-hop. You will get hooked on the music and stay for the poignant and enlightening lyrics.
Although Space Beyond The Solar System could be considered a concept album by its outcome, its inception started from a string of experiments between Moore and frequent collaborator/producer Damu the Fudgemunk. These initial sessions had no specific direction but became the catalyst for what would become a prolific wave of Raw Poetic projects; five of which have been released since 2020.
It was these initial sessions and the demos they produced that convinced Shepp—who is also Raw Poetic’s uncle—to record what would eventually become 2020’s Ocean Bridges, a collaborative album from Raw, Damu, and Shepp, praised by The FADER as a “modern masterpiece at the intersection of rap and jazz.” The trio’s collaboration continues on Space Beyond The Solar System, which boasts three tracks featuring the jazz legend, including the song “A Mile In My Head.”
