After releasing his mesmerizing track "Rank & File" last week, Moses Sumney has now released his Black in Deep Red, 2014 EP

The three-song project arrived Friday and includes the previously released single. It also comes as Sumney has been busy touring, including a number of festival stops such as Bonnaroo, Governors Ball and Pitchfork Fest. 

According to Sumney, the new music was directly inspired by his first and last protest experience. "It was in the fall of 2014, after a grand jury decided not to charge the offending officer in the Mike Brown murder," he recalls. "I took to the mountains soon after that and wrote these songs, wondering if power was a transferable device that could change hands through the vocalizing of unrest."

Yesterday (Aug. 9) marked four years since the death of Michael Brown.
