Producer Alex Da Kid and singer-songwriter Joseph Angel have teamed up on “American Funeral,” a powerful R&B record that targets police brutality and tensions in the United States, with lyrics like “America, the beautiful/ America, the murderer/ America, the funeral/ God bless America.”

“We’re living in interesting times, and we’re all trying to make sense of those times,“ Alex comments on the song. "Who’s right and who’s wrong? What’s real and what’s fake? It all depends on your perspective. ‘American Funeral’ looks at the world from two points of view that don’t understand one another emotionally. I hope people feel both the fear and the hope. It’s all a part of our story.” (Billboard, Hazel, 2017)
