Elijah Blake shys away from his typical Pop/R&B sound and unlocks his inner old-school soul in the music video for “Hanging Tree.” From the meaningful lyrics and power behind his vocals to the simplicity of the visuals, everything about this is beautiful.

The song comes from a compilation album by SANKOFA which will be released in the near future. The proceeds from streaming/buying the single go towards grassroots organization efforts around issues of racial and social justice.
