DISPOSSESSION

ALGIERS / Matador records


From Algiers' new album, "There Is No Year" released by Matador Record on January 17, 2020. “Dispossession” is a politically-charged look at the world around us, featuring guest vocals from Cleveland’s afrofuturist group Mourning [A] BLKstar. “The specter of dispossession is haunting us all,”

The accompanying video, directed by Sohail Daulatzai, was filmed in the Noisy-le-Grand commune in eastern Paris, and includes images from the band’s visit to their namesake city, Algiers, during the 2019 Algerian protests, also called Revolution of Smiles or Hirak Movement.
