Northwest artist Black Belt Eagle Scout has announced a new LP, the follow-up to her debut album Mother of My Children. Titled At the Party with My Brown Friends, the sophomore release will be out August 30th via Saddle Creek. Today, she shares the first single "At the Party." Songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Katherine Paul described the song via a press release:
“Within my conscious self, there is always a sense of questioning the legitimacy of the world when you grow up on an Indian reservation. We are all at the party (the world), trying to navigate ourselves within a good or bad situation. I happen to be at the party with my brown friends- Indigenous, Black, POC who always have my back while we walk throughout this event called life.”
Listen below and watch video from her recent KEXP in-studio session.
The song is the A-side of a forthcoming 7-inch on Saddle Creek Records
The Northwest songwriter breaks down her debut album, highlighting the multi-faceted aspects of her own identity.
The Portland-based artist's new album (recently re-released on Saddle Creek) offers a singular perspective on the concept of losing things, whether it's an ideal or a person.
