Earlier this year, acclaimed songwriter Sonya Kitchell released her latest album, We Come Apart. Since then, Kitchell has continued to perform all over the world as a soloist and with other groups including Tedeschi Trucks Band.
It was the shocking aftermath of the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election, however, that led Kitchell back to formal recorded output in the form of the haunting new track, “Funeral.” The protest song examines the complicated swirl of emotions brought on by the ultimate rise of Donald Trump and his dangerous cabinet appointments.
On “Funeral,” Kitchell’s powerful voice is laid over a sparse, haunting acoustic arrangement in examination of real world and existential grief.
“A whole nation
Cries in the wake
The glass ceiling must break”
