This compilation sets out to provide an aural antidote to the unilateral thinking dominating much of Western politics. The tracks assembled here chart a deliberately international journey, from the UK to Uganda and back, stopping off in Greece, Lithuania, Poland, the US and more. We don’t pretend that this album will change attitudes. But it is part of a growing current of local action with a global perspective. That’s why Byrd Out is giving a quarter of its revenues from the release to Waltham Forest Migrant Action*.
