Georgia Anne Muldrow and Dudley Perkins (a.k.a Declaime), collectively known as G&D, will present their latest album, Black Love & War, on August 9. 

Both life and musical partners, G&D have been together for over 13 years, even raising three children together. The album celebrates “black love” and the unity of the black family, but also delves into many of the socio-economic and racial issues that still have them at “war.” It features production from Oh No and Mike & Keys (Nipsey Hussle), and vocal contributions from Aloe Blacc, Latoiya Williams, Sean Biggs, and Ms. Dezy.

Black Love & War won’t surprise those who’ve followed Georgia and Dudley to this point. The Cali-bred, Nevada-based couple have always challenged listeners to stand tall in the face of tyranny, including on their two two previous albums as G&D, 2007’s Time ‎and 2008’s SomeOthaShip Connect. “The devil is working, and as scores of black people die at the hands of racist white law enforcement and MAGA followers emboldened by the U.S. president, now’s the time to prepare for revolution,” reads the press release. 

“We thought, ‘Let’s hit ’em harder, and not give a fuck about the industry,'” Perkins says about the album’s premise.

The first single from the album, “Where I’m From,” is now available

Later this month, Georgia Anne Muldrow will release VWETO II, her latest full-length album, via Mello Music Group
