Moses Sumney shares new single 'Rank & File'

Today, Moses Sumney shares a new single. ‘Rank & File‘ arrives in the midst of a busy summer of touring that has seen Moses perform at Field Day, Governor’s Ball, Pitchfork and Bonnaroo Music Festivals. In addition, Moses is announcing a new EP titled Black in Deep Red, 2014 due out August 10th via Jagjaguwar. This latest release follows May’s Make Out in My Car: Chameleon Suite, which featured Sufjan Stevens, James Blake, and Alex Isley.

Moses had this to say about the new EP: “Black in Deep Red, 2014 was ignited by the first and last time I attended a protest. It was in the fall of 2014, after a grand jury decided not to charge the offending officer in the Mike Brown murder, delivering the verdict just in time for them to get home for Thanksgiving. I felt like a camouflaged outsider at the protest, like an anthropologist performing a study amongst his own kind. I took to the mountains soon after that and wrote these songs, wondering if power was a transferable device that could change hands through the vocalizing of unrest.

The EP’s title is inspired by a 1957 Mark Rothko painting by the same name.”
