Leon Bridges and Terrace Martin shared new song “Sweeter” inspired by a racial injustice

Leon Bridges and Terrace Martin shared the new song “Sweeter” inspired by racial injustice. The song was originally intended for a future album, but the singer decided to release the track early in light of current events. Bridges collaborated on that track with Terrace Martin, the LA jazz and hip-hop producer, who already released all his anger in the protest anthem “Pig Feet” with Denzel Curry, G Perico, Daylyt and Kamasi Washington. Leon Bridges released recently an EP with the psych-funk trio Khruangbin called "Texas Sun".

Watch below the video to Leon Bridges and Terrace Martin new song “Sweeter” a new single inspired by a racial injustice:

“Growing up in Texas I have personally experienced racism, my friends have experienced racism. From adolescence we are taught how to conduct ourselves when we encounter police to avoid the consequences of being racially profiled. I have been numb for too long, calloused when it came to the issues of police brutality. The death of George Floyd was the straw that broke the camel’s back for me. It was the first time I wept for a man I never met. I am George Floyd, my brothers are George Floyd, and my sisters are George Floyd. I cannot and will not be silent any longer. Just as Abel’s blood was crying out to God, George Floyd is crying out to me. So, I present to you Sweeter” – we can read in a statement released by Leon Bridges with the song.
