Moor Mother announces new album, 'Jazz Codes', shares new video

Moor Mother has a new album on the way, called 'Jazz Codes'. 

The album, out next month, follows swiftly on from the Philadelphia artist's last LP, 'Black Encyclopedia Of The Air', which was released in September of 2021. Taking in 21 tracks, it features a wide cast of collaborators that includes Mary Lattimore, Melanie Charles, Nicole Mitchell, YUNGMORPHEUS and Irreversible Entanglements, the free jazz ensemble of which Moor Mother is a member.

The album takes its name from a book of poems written in honour of jazz and blues icons like Mary Lou Williams, Woody Shaw and Amina Claudine Myers. It sees the US artists seek to explore free jazz and poetry within the principles of her self-dubbed Black Quantum Futurism collaboration-based practice.

Watch a video for the Melanie Charles-featuring lead track 'WOODY SHAW' below ahead of the full release of 'Jazz Codes' via ANTI- on 1st July.

Earlier this year, Moor Mother released her first album with DJ Haram as 700 Bliss on Hyperdub.
