The legendary Bruce Cockburn is releasing a video for "April In Memphis" from his upcoming album Crowing Ignite, in honour of Martin Luther King on that tragic day April 4, 1968, in Memphis, Tennessee.
Bruce says, "The piece came into being on MLK Day 2019. It pretty much formed itself in the course of a practice session. It took the shape of a lament, more than a celebration, which set me to thinking of King’s murder, and the loss of a voice of wisdom, compassion and respect that we could really use about now. Hence the title. I think the video conveys the right sense of the poignant beauty, of the dignity, of the man and the spirituality that fueled him."
