BCA Patron Idris Elba unveiled his anthemic new single, ‘One Fine Day’, today and is donating 100%. of the royalties to Black Cultural Archives.
Released via Idris’ London based label 7Wallace, the single features New York electro-pop producers The Knocks, and Tanzanian-born, South-London bred producer and rapper Tiggs Da Author. It’s described as ‘a high-octane injection of optimism’.
Of the donation, BCA Managing Director, Arike Oke, said “We are delighted that our patron Idris Elba has a new track out and even more pleased that he’s using the track to support Black Cultural Archives.
“We’ll be putting Idris’ contribution towards our education programmes and will also be using it to help us continue to collect and preserve the histories of people of African and of Caribbean descent.
“We have a new call out to document the current Black Lives Matter activism. Idris’ support will mean that we can collect and share this history in the making.”
Idris Elba founded his 7Wallace imprint in 2015 with the aim of breaking boundaries in dance and hip-hop. Artists who’ve released on the label under various collaborative projects include Toddla T, Kah-Lo, Q-Tip, Little Simz, James BKS and Cypress Hill.
‘One Fine Day’ is available on all popular streaming platforms.
