Activist, artist, actor, poet and all-around Renaissance man Saul Williams won’t rest until the world is free. Creating music to march to, his newest track “The Noise Comes From Here” channels the energy of a restless people, sampling chants and claps. Sometimes it’s easier to “shut out” the global issues of inequality, poverty, war and more, but Williams’ work inspires listeners to look at the issues straight in the face and question the status quo. Williams’ upcoming album MartyrLoserKing, narrated from the perspective of a fictional hacker character living in Burundi, will be released 29 January 2016.
