Following the release of their excellent version of Sam Cooke’s civil-rights movement classic A Change Is Gonna Come, South London youth music education project Youthsayers are back with another timely tune.
The anti-racist anthem Racist Friend was originally written and recorded by The Special AKA in 1983.
Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, the Youthsayers decided to record the song in isolation during lockdown and even managed to persuade original Special AKA vocalist Rhoda Dakar to make a guest appearance.
The song is produced by local legends Soothsayers who lead the project.
Play it loud!
