Jeremy Dutcher announces his sophomore LP, Motewolonuwok, and shares lead single “Ancestors Too Young”

Today, Jeremy Dutcher – the classically trained Two-Spirit song carrier, composer, activist and member of Neqotkuk (Tobique First Nation) in Eastern Canada – announces his sophomore record, Motewolonuwok, set to be released October 6th. It will be available in digital, CD and LP formats.

Dutcher also shares today the lead single “Ancestors Too Young”, a new track that descends into organized chaos, ripping the carefully orchestrated structure into a shapeshifting exploration of unrest, reflecting on the fear of loss that pervades the modern Indigenous experience.  

The Motewolonuwok album inspiration began with a poem by Cherokee writer Qwo-li Driskill. “From the heavy debris of loss, together we emerge,” a singular story of a two-spirit kin who was taken too soon, and calls us all together to witness, celebrate and heal. The new album also marks Dutcher’s first time writing and singing in English. A powerful invitation for collective healing and understanding. “Shared tongue is a beautiful gift, with a complicated reason,” Dutcher explains.
