Why do we like this?

Many of you might recognize Raury for his inclusion in our list of the 10 best folk songs of 2014 (the track in question: "God's Whisper").

Yesterday, the much-buzzed-about artist unleashed a new single to the world alongside Malik Shakur. "Fly" continues the artist's folk appreciation, with lyrics that allude to the Mike Brown case.

"I wrote ‘Fly’ right after hearing that Darren Wilson was not being indicted for murdering Mike Brown. I wrote it instantly that the words and music didn't even feel like mine. I knew that this track belonged to the universe.

‘Fly’ is a reset button on the revolution. ‘Fly’ is an ode to the ones who were wrongfully murdered, mourning the deaths and also looking on the bright side to help us find peace in the fact that they are in a better place, they fly in heaven now.

My best friend Malik Shakur also felt the need to express his hope for the future and the growth of Black excellence when he recorded with me in the midst of America trying to capture his Aunt Assata Shakur. He also looks to walk along with me, as we heal the world through love and high-frequency music.

Deep in my heart I know everything is going to be alright. - raury #indigoChild”
