As they gear up to release their upcoming album Black Love & War, Georgia Anne Muldrow and Dudley Perkins are giving fans a taste of what they can expect from the new project. Joined together in life, love and music under the recording moniker G&D, the talented couple recently shared the second single from the album entitled “P.A.L..” which is an acronym for “Post-Apocalyptic Love” and highlights the importance of the black family, especially the bond between black men and women. At a time when gossip columns and national headlines tend to shine the spotlight on the many societal issues that threaten and stir discord among us, this track serves as a reminder of just how central the family unit is to the strength of our community and how we must be persistent in its preservation.
Produced by Georgia Anne, the soulful track captures both the tumult and the triumph of black love by celebrating the sanctuary one finds in a partner that truly understands and can help to lift, or at least share, the weight of the burdens and struggles we face daily. Dudley, aka Declaime says, “We have to be stronger as a unit. The male and female. The king and queen actually gotta come together during this war. Black love is essential in these post-apocalyptic times.” We couldn’t agree more, and instead of keeping score for “hot girl/boy summer,” we prefer to promote and protect black love.

The couple’s fourth duet album, Black Love & War, is available now for pre-order, and is set to drop this Friday, August 9th on SomeOthaShip Connect/eOne. SoulBouncers in New York can catch Georgia Anne at the Black Woodstock 50th Anniversary event on August 17th in Harlem and at Brooklyn’s BRIC JazzFest Music Marathon in October.
