LABEL: BASSEL MUSIC
ABOUT THIS RELEASE
Release Date: March 6, 2020
Bassel & The Supernaturals are proud to announce the release of their third studio production, Smoke & Mirrors (LP), due out April 17, 2020. The Chicago based group tells the story of Bassel Almadani’s experience as a first generation Syrian-American using soulful melodies, funk inspired grooves, and captivating lyrics regarding love, loss, and the war
in Syria. The significance of April 17 also holds another meaning for Bassel as it marks Syrian Independence Day. In the midst of a revolution that has left over 12,000,000 civilians in need of humanitarian relief, the timing of the band’s release combined with Bassel’s global advocacy efforts to support the sustainability of immigrants & refugees reinforce a message of resilience and hope for their eventual independence.
The title track “Smoke” dismantles the myth of glamour often surrounding touring artists.
