"Selfish Soul" is Sudan Archives' first outing since March's "Home Maker", and lands with a Trey Lyons-directed video.

Sudan Archives says the single is "about women and the celebration of hair. It’s about representation of different hair textures and embracing all colors and textures of it."

"I feel like there’s an American standard of what beautiful hair is, and I wanted to show in this video that’s not what all beauty is; to showcase different hairstyles and different types of women and their hair," she adds. "I was inspired by India Arie's "I Am Not My Hair", one of the first songs I heard about this subject. She talks about extensions and weaves and natural hair and nappy hair, and that she’s not her hair; she won’t conform to the comparisons that would come up if you had a weave or sew-in or natural hair or Afro – that doesn’t represent her."

She's yet to follow up her 2019 debut album Athena.

"Selfish Soul" is out now. Sudan Archives will play London's All Points East festival on 25 August. Visit sudanarchives.com for the full list of tour dates.
