BABY WOODROSE is an iconic band on the Danish psych scene who released their debut album, 'Blows Your Mind', back in 2001. Long before psychedelic music had a revival frontman Lorenzo Woodrose and his band came up with their own mix of psych, garage and stoner rock which they have refined during the years.
The band's new album is called 'Freedom' and is due out September 16th 2016 on Bad Afro Records.
'21st Century Slave' is the second single/video from the album. The song deals with the current state of our society and how it affects us all. Consciously or not. It also introduces the modern slave song.
Lorenzo Woodrose: "The inspiration for the album came from the title track, a cover we have been playing around with for about a year. Mostly known for the version Richie Havens improvised on Woodstock in 1969, it is actually a much older song, known as a gospel tune, a negro spiritual or a 'slave song'. This expression gave me the idea to write modern day slave songs, so all the songs on the new album deal with mind control, brainwash, hamster wheels, slavery and oppression."
The video is made by Palle Demant who made the documentary, 'Born To Lose', last year about Lorenzo Woodrose.
