Indigenous singer-songwriter Emma Donovan has teamed up with Archie Roach and Tim Rogers on her latest 45 for Hope Street Recordings.

Released on October 23rd 2015, it’s a response to forced closures of Indigenous communities in Western Australia. Proceeds of the record will go to SOS Blak Australia an organisation that is dedicated to supporting these communities and preventing their closure.

On Side A Emma collaborates with rapper Joelistics alongside You Am I front-man and Bamboos collaborator Tim Rogers. They perform a version of Warumpi Band’s 1985 anthem Blackfella Whitefella. On the flip-side she teams up with Archie Roach on a deep soul rendition of Down City Streets.
