Kamasi Washington has announced fresh details about his forthcoming EP, ‘Harmony of Difference.’

“Truth” was the first song to be unveiled from the critically acclaimed saxophonist’s forthcoming effort, and to great fanfare at the Whitney Biennial exhibition of contemporary American art earlier this year.

“My hope is that witnessing the beautiful harmony created by merging different musical melodies will help people realize the beauty in our own differences,” Washington said, describing his aim in creating the EP.

Along with the 13-minute track, which we now know is the last song in the six-movement suite, the 36-year-old also gave us a taste of the visuals that will accompany the work, led by filmmaker A. G. Rojas.

Now, Washington has revealed the release date of the EP will be September 29, 2017 on London’s own Young Turks label.

This release will mark the first collection of new music the saxophonist has put out since his appropriately titled major-label debut ‘The Epic’ in 2015.
