“Today Terri Lyne Carrington and Social Science have revealed a new song from their upcoming ambitious double album Waiting Game (November 8/Motema). The song, “If Not Now, “ features Maimouna Youssef aka Mumu Fresh. Carrington has also spent this week as the guest drummer in the 8G Band on Late Night with Seth Meyers.

“If Not Now” is a call to action for gender equity led by the vocal and emcee work of Maimouna Youssef aka Mumu Fresh, “an artist that any fan of gospel, jazz, soul and hip-hop needs to know, “ according to NPR.

“‘If Not Now’ is a gentler way of saying ‘time’s up, ‘” Carrington explains. “It’s an exciting time because people are deciding where they stand, and this song is appealing to that particular call to action. It’s suggesting accountability from our brothers, continued support from our mothers, and encouraging strength and confidence in each other.”“
