Three years after Résistance, Malian band Songhoy Blues announced the release of their third album which will be outon October 2nd via Transgressive. We already shared “Worry” and “Badala”; “Barre” is a new excerpt. Talking about the track, Aliou from the band said: “Barre means change. We need change. In the song we are inviting youth to get involved in politics and government to bring about change because they understand the actual challenges we face today.

That’s the only way. The problem in Mali is guys from the 1960s are still around and control everything. It’s like how yesterday gave today a chance, today needs to give tomorrow a chance.
