The Black Madonna single you’ve been waiting for is finally here

Back in November, The Black Madonna released her first official single in over two years – but you had to be quick to get it.

He Is The Voice I Hear was given a limited pressing on vinyl and sold out everywhere almost immediately, clocking in soon after at #32 on ITM’s list of the best tracks of 2016. Dance matriarch Marea Stamper promised a digital release was coming and today, it’s finally arrived: the 10-minute disco voyage is on SoundCloud now and available to buy all the usual places via her label We Still Believe.

As Stamper explains, He Is The Voice I Hear marks her first original release since 2013’s Lady of the Sorrows. “It’s been a long journey from there to here. I’m so thrilled to continue the story and finally realize my dream of bringing together an ensemble of live musicians,” she posted on SoundCloud. “This record was a joy to create.”

And if you still want it on wax? Stamper has promised that she’s working on getting new vinyl out “soon”.
