Ahead of these releases, the band has shared a remix for "World of Light," an adventurous reimagining by Moor Mother with additional production by Scott Evans (Kowloon Walled City). The track features snippets of Sumac's sound warped into a scintillating beat with bass oozing beneath a slow churn, while Moor Mother's steady but fervent rapping addresses themes of death, money, technology, and political apathy. 

Sumac's Aaron Turner shared the following:

Moor Mother is an artist we've wanted to work with and admired for a long time, and we are excited we were able to come together for this. We had a feeling this would be a fitting pairing, yet the result exceeds expectations. So much deep resonant power and feeling in this piece! We are grateful for this connection and the resulting music - it's also highly appropriate and meaningful at this particular moment in time. Thanks to Camae and Scott Evans for realizing such a great piece of music - looking forward to more!

Moor Mother added:

It's a pleasure to work with SUMAC – they are really sweet. I'm excited because we have more to come! Stay tuned.
