'Go My Heart, Go To Heaven' from the griot themed We Are Sent Here By History from Shabaka and the Ancestors, is to be released on 13 March. Shabaka Hutchings, tenor saxophonist and clarinettist and titular head of the collective, in publicity calls the album to be released by Impulse to which the band are newly signed as a "meditation on the fact of our coming extinction as a species. It is a reflection from the ruins, from the burning, a questioning of the steps to be taken in preparation for our transition individually and societally if the end is to be seen as anything but a tragic defeat. For those lives lost and cultures dismantled by centuries of western expansionism, capitalist thought and white supremist structural hegemony the end days have long been heralded as present with this world experienced as an embodiment of living purgatory."
