Snarky Puppy Releases First Immigrance Bonus Track, "Embossed"

Snarky Puppy has released the first in a series of bonus tracks from Immigrance!

For Bill Laurance, composer of the first bonus track of Immigrance, “Embossed is a reaction to the social, political and environmental anxiety of the times. It’s a musical call to arms, asking the listener to engage both as an individual and as a member of larger movements for change.”
