Sam Sparro, Daniel Merriweather and Emoni Fela tackle the systematic and deep running implications of pharmaceutical drug addiction on new single Pharma Karma.
Taken from the Black & Gold singer’s upcoming EP Quantum Physical 3: Conspiracy, out 19 August, Sparro pulls focus upon the lengthy prison stretches dolled out to those who become dependent upon prescribed drugs, while the large, multi-billion dollar organisations walk away Scott free.
“I was thinking about the overwhelming population of people of color in prison–many of them locked up for ridiculous amounts of time on petty drug charges and non-violent crime,” says the Aussie musician. “But we have corporate drug dealers killing people everyday without any recourse. I mean, Michael Jackson? Prince? Two of my biggest hero’s taken by prescription drugs… it’s just crazy. And sad.”
