The Great Bailout is Moor Mother aka Camae Ayewa’s ninth studio album and third with ANTI- Records, with production contributions on various tracks from Mary Lattimore, Lonnie Holley, Vijay Ayer, Angel Bat Dawid, Sistazz of the Nitty Gritty, Aaron Dilloway and more. Called “the poet laureate of the apocalypse,” by Pitchfork, Ayewa’s music contains multitudes of instruments, voices and cacophony that take on themes of Afrofuturism and collective memory with the forebearers of jazz, hip hop and beat poetry in mind.“Research is a major part of my work, and researching history - particularly African history, philosophy and time - is a major interest,” Moor Mother said of the music’s focus on the effects of British colonialism. “Europe and Africa have a very intimate and brutal relationship throughout time. I’m interested in exploring that relationship of colonialism and liberation, in this case in Great Britain.”
Limited to 300 copies, the VMP exclusive version of Moor Mother's The Great Bailout is pressed on Metallic Silver vinyl at Independent Record Pressing (IRP). The 1LP will arrive in a single, direct-to-board, foil-stamped and numbered jacket. It was mastered by Alex Nagle.
