mourning in america and
dreaming in color

“This is not just a new album, but a new chapter. There’s a kind of democratic reawakening in people at this point in time. I was really looking to take these topics and really hit them hard. To try to open ears and hearts and invite people to take some action and feel empowered. To be engaged and take some agency and responsibility for what’s going on in the world.”
Brother Ali

Available Now!

Fully recharged and inspired by his eye-opening first trip to Mecca, the 2011 uprisings in the Middle East, and the worldwide Occupy movements, Brother Ali is prepared to unveil Mourning In America and Dreaming In Color.

Created during a prolific, self-imposed two-month exile in Seattle and helped by platinum-selling producer Jake One, the album represents a brave new phase in Brother Ali’s remarkable career trajectory.

Mourning In America and Dreaming In Color presents a scathing, yet honest, critique of America and its many flaws while simultaneously presenting a hopeful outlook of its possibilities.


"Ali is a man with a purpose and zero interest in holding back..."
- Pitchfork
"Mourning in America and Dreaming in Color's inspiring and heartfelt stance is another triumph for Brother Ali."
- HipHopDX
"...The sweet trick of the album is how approachable it is, living up to its title with equal shares of Mourning and Dreaming."
- AllMusic
