THIEVERY CORPORATION RELEASES VIDEO FOR “UNIFIED TRIBES” FEAT. MR. LIF
TRACK DEDICATED TO OCCUPY MOVEMENT PROTESTERS
(Washington, DC) — Thievery Corporation has released “Unified Tribes,” their new single and video featuring acclaimed MC and Def Jux alum Mr. Lif. In the spirit of their last collaboration, Culture of Fear, “Unified Tribes” is another sonic molotov aimed straight at the belly of the beast.
“This song, ‘Unified Tribes’ is our attempt to offer inspiration, energy, and hopefully a morale boost to the Movement as it will take persistence and resilience to bring about change to the collective consciousness of our culture,” explains Mr. Lif.
“We’ve been so fortunate to link up with Mr. Lif,” says Eric Hilton. “He has a revolutionary spirit in the purest, most humane sense; and the world needs more of his conscious approach to hip-hop.”
Perhaps a mutual appreciation is why Mr. Lif has been spending more time in DC with Thievery Corporation, working on his new material. His next full-length LP will be co-produced by Thievery Corporation and released on ESL Music in 2012.
Mr. Lif further elaborates, “My music has largely been fueled by a desire for increased understanding of human nature and the world we live in. The Occupy movement is important to me because it is the people’s massive response to the unsavory aspect of human nature known as greed. Occupiers have come together in an attempt to bring about better conditions for the many as opposed to the few.”
