BLKBOK Announces Deluxe Version Of Debut Album ‘BLACK BOOK DLUX’

Neoclassical pianist and Detroit native BLKBOK is set to soundtrack this year’s Juneteenth celebrations with the deluxe version of his debut album ‘Black Book’.

Neoclassical pianist and Detroit native BLKBOK is set to soundtrack this year’s Juneteenth celebrations with the deluxe version of his debut album ‘Black Book‘. Arriving on June 17 via icons+giants, ‘Black Book DLUX’ is a timely natural continuation of BLKBOK’s critically-acclaimed debut as a composer, reflecting on pertinent social issues, with counterpoints, and sustaining a dialogue through his thought-provoking pieces. The package includes 11 new interstitial poems woven throughout the album, written and narrated by award-winning Jamaican poet Lauren Delapenha. Additionally, it features two new powerful singles “Kendrick + Karine” and “Forgotten Girls.

“This one was a bit of a challenge, it forced me to visit a place mentally and emotionally that wasn’t easy to access,” BLKBOK explains. “I had to imagine if one of my sisters was a victim of a horrible inhumane act and was missing, something I never want to think about, but unfortunately is a reality for so many families. This song is dedicated to those girls who are missing and are so often ignored, I see you sis, I love you, and we miss you, you are not forgotten.”
