Taken from her forthcoming album of the same name, Zimbabwean-American artist Shungudzo shares the new single “I’m not a mother but I have children”. Her own interpretation of a classic folk protest song, her own personal approach to producing and songwriting has created a soothing, lullaby-like song that hones in on the need to preserve the world’s existence for future generations.
“This song is a call to look beyond the selfish things we want in the present and look towards the elevation and preservation of future generations of ALL living things; to accept that many of the fights we’re fighting now won’t be won in our lifetimes, but to also rejoice in the roles we’ll have played in paving the road to a better tomorrow. I hope we can someday stop feuding over things like borders and race, and come together to save the two things we all need most of all: each other and this planet.”
