"(The title track) was created as an ode to the countless black lives lost over the years ... a profound, inspiring anthem ..."
- Billboard

"The dense, dynamic (title track) blends simmering strings, DJ scratching and chopped, jazzy piano chords. Throughout, Common references Black Lives Matter, Trayvon Martin, slavery, mass incarceration and the Flint water crisis."
- Rolling Stone

Common is joined by guests Stevie Wonder, John Legend, Bilal and others on Black America Again, the provocatively-titled album Rolling Stone called "politically charged."

"I felt like Black America Again was a strong statement and it also was a way to start the conversation ... (it) isn't only about the protesting and the justice ... Black America Again is about humanity and how we express ourselves, love and ways of feeling free. We are rewriting the black American story."
- Common

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
