RELEASED: 3rd May 2024

Format:  1LP Red / 1LP Blue Coloured Vinyl LP
Cat No:  YO350LPE

Kamasi Washington calls his new album, ‘Fearless Movement’, his dance album. “It’s
not literal,” Washington says. “Dance is movement and expression, and in a way it’s
the same thing as music - expressing your spirit through your body. That’s what this
album is pushing.”

Dance as an embodied form of expression signals a shift in focus for Washington.
Where previous albums dealt with cosmic ideas and existential concepts, ‘Fearless
Movement’ focuses in on the everyday, an exploration of life on earth. This change in
scope is due in large part to the birth of Washington’s first child a few years ago.

“Being a father means the horizon of your life all of a sudden shows up,” says
Washington. “My mortality became more apparent to me, but also my immortality -
realizing that my daughter is going to live on and see things that I’m never going to
see. I had to become comfortable with this, and that affected the music that I was

The album features Washington’s daughter - who wrote the melody to ‘Asha The
First’ during some of her first experimentations on the piano - as well as a host of
collaborators new and old. André 3000 appears on flute, George Clinton lends his
voice, as do BJ The Chicago Kid, Inglewood rapper D-Smoke and Taj and Ras
Austin of Coast Contra, the twin sons of West Coast legend Ras Kass. Washington
further enlisted lifelong friends and collaborators Thundercat, Terrace Martin, Patrice
Quinn, Brandon Coleman, DJ Battlecat and more.

Kamasi Washington is a multi-instrumentalist, composer and bandleader born and
raised in Los Angeles. His three bodies of work to date - ‘The Epic’; ‘Harmony of
Difference’, an EP originally commissioned for the 2017 Whitney Biennial; and
‘Heaven and Earth’ - are among the most acclaimed of this century. ‘
