Timothy Bloom returns with the powerful new single, “Burden’s Song,” a record that touches on the injustice faced by many in communities across America.
Supported by a thought-provoking video, in the Cold Creator-directed clip, the prolific singer and songwriter highlight a prisoner who is seen bounded in chains while being assaulted by a black Sheriff as he walks a railroad. The grayscale visual connects the olden days with the current times, spotlighting how far we still have to go as a society.
“Something Nina Simone said in an interview spoke to my heart,” Bloom shared, speaking on the inspiration behind ‘Burden’s Song’s’ visuals. “Nina said, ‘Artists should write about the times.’ This is my present moment in time.”
‘Burden’s Song’ serves as the first single from Bloom’s upcoming album, Blood Note, slated to release this summer.
