Kamasi Washington announces double album ‘Heaven and Earth’

Kamasi Washington, the acclaimed and highly respected saxophonist, has announced details of new double album Heaven & Earth.

Washington will release his second album on June 22, and to celebrate, has shared ‘Fists Of Fury’ and ‘The Space Traveler’s Lullaby’ as the first two tracks to emerge from the album which are available to stream now.

“The world that my mind lives in, lives in my mind”, Kamasi said of the record.

“This idea inspired me to make this album Heaven & Earth. The reality we experience is a mere creation of our consciousness, but our consciousness creates this reality based on those very same experiences. We are simultaneously the creators of our personal universe and creations of our personal universe.

“The Earth side of this album represents the world as I see it outwardly, the world that I am a part of. The Heaven side of this album represents the world as I see it inwardly, the world that is a part of me. Who I am and the choices I make lie somewhere in between.”
