Once Human is now streaming the fourth single off their coming record Scar Weaver in the form of “Erasure.” Vocalist Lauren Hart said the song is about the dark world of the blood diamond industry, and how despite regulations the practice is still happening in parts of the world.
“‘Erasure’ is a song about blood diamonds. It’s about the clear-cut, horrific message that a rock is worth more than a life to their producers. Although today there are human rights laws and regulations that have eased the violent unearthing of these stones, it is still happening in certain parts of the world. My heart broke as I dove into the meaning of why it’s called a ‘blood diamond,’ and I felt compelled to tell its story.”
Scar Weaver is out on February 11. Pre-orders are available here.
