Dumpstaphunk Unveils ‘Where Do We Go From Here’ Single
Dumpstaphunk shared a new single, “Where Do We Go From Here.” The song is the title track to the Ivan Neville-led New Orleans funk outfit’s upcoming album set for release this fall via Mascot Label Group / The Funk Garage.
“Where Do We Go From Here” arrives during the week of the 15 year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and as another hurricane, Laura, ravages the Gulf Coast region. The song also acknowledges the movement for racial justice and equality. Dumpstaphunk’s Ivan Neville stated the following:
“Where Do We Go From Here” really comes more from my perspective on life in general, than being specifically about Katrina or the unprecedented events of the last six months. I mean those of us from here (New Orleans) were asking ourselves this same question 15 years ago, not knowing what the future of our city would hold. Looking at where we are now, we stand at a different crossroads given the uncertainty of a worldwide pandemic, the struggles we’re facing with social injustice and systemic racism, and the turmoil in a controversial election year. It is a question we are asking ourselves again. The song remains an optimistic point of view towards facing the challenges of the future and the unknown.
