Info for A Beautiful Revolution Pt. 1 & 2
Common has officially announced his 14th studio album, A Beautiful Revolution Pt. 2.
The upcoming record is billed as the followup to its 2020 counterpart and will feature Jessica Care Moore, PJ, Black Thought, Seun Kuti, Marcus King, Isaiah Sharkey, Brittany Howard and Morgan Parker. Common is also set to debut its lead single “When We Move” with Black Thought and Seun Kuti live on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on August 19.
“’A Beautiful Revolution Pt. 2’ was created with hope and inspiration in mind. The spirit of the album was meant to emulate what a greater day would sound and feel like,” Common said in a statement. “We were in the midst of some tough political and socially challenging times. There was still hurt, anger and pain lingering, so I was thinking, “what is the next step in this revolution?” I thought about what being still in these times had brought me and that was a peace beyond understanding, a greater love for self, a closer connection with God, and more appreciation for my family, friends and the simple things in life. I wanted to write about that and create music that embodied that. What does a new day, a brighter day feel like being told through an emcee and some gifted musicians? How could this music be an example of the beautiful aspects of revolution that include joy, self-love, compassion, dreams, peace and good times? As a piece of art, I believe we took it to different places musically only to come back to the original intention. To bring joy to people’s hearts, fun to their lives and smiles to their souls.”
Common is an artist, actor, activist and, most recently, a New York Times best-selling author with the release of his latest memoir “Let Love Have The Last Word.” With a storied career spanning three decades, his work has been recognized with numerous GRAMMY® Awards, as well as an Emmy® and an Academy® Award for the song “Glory” which he co-wrote and performed with John Legend. He recently finished work on a new album that is slated for release later this year.
