Dorothy Drops Anthemic ‘Black Sheep’, Reveals Full Album Details

0

Calling all rock outcasts – Dorothy has just released a new single called ‘Black Sheep’, along with a preview video, and has revealed all the details for her upcoming third album Gifts of the Holy Spirit.

“Black Sheep” is the album’s second single, following “Rest in Peace”, released earlier this year. The album’s track listing reveals that the song “What’s Coming to Me,” which was released last summer, is not actually part of the album and was just a single single instead. The new track’s visualizer consists of tour clips and photos from Dorothy’s 2021 festival performances.

“We have a song for the rock community and fans called ‘Black Sheep’, and the lyrics I like the most in the song are”We are blood / We are family”, Dorothy told us in an interview. “There’s this sense of camaraderie that’s so beautiful in our community.”

Gifts of the Holy Spirit will be available on April 22 via Roc Nation. Check out “Black Sheep” and its lyrics, along with album art and track listing below.

Dorothy is currently touring with Joyous Wolf and Classless Act. The next show is tomorrow night (March 26) in Austin, Texas. To see the full program here.

Dorothy, ‘Black Sheep’ lyrics

Hello, hello black sheep
We are blood, we are family

Call me an outcast, call me a freak
Watch these bullets ricochet off me
‘Cause I belong where right is wrong
No lost cause as the good book says
Don’t care what people think
I walk to a different song

Whoa, I feel it deep in my bones
I was born to break every curse, every chain
So I sing

Hello, hello black sheep
We are blood, we are family
Pray to the lord my soul keeps
Hello, hello black sheep
Thicker than water, thicker than thieves
Oh how deep the river is
We are blood, we are family
Hello, hello black sheep

I can’t shut up, I won’t bite my tongue
Tell my truth until the day is done
I’m not ashamed, I own my pain
I was never lost but I found my way
I always knew I’d show my scars one day
‘Cause the rules I broke helped me build my throne

Whoa, I’m where I belong
Now I sing

Hello, hello black sheep
We are blood, we are family
Pray to the lord my soul keeps
Hello, hello black sheep
Thicker than water, thicker than thieves
Oh how deep the river is
We are blood, we are family
Hello, hello black sheep

Hi black sheep, yeah
Hi black sheep, oh yeah
From the streets to the gutters, we are sisters and brothers
One nation under one love, one color, born to be a black sheep

Hello, hello black sheep
We are blood, we are family
Pray to the lord my soul keeps
Hello, hello black sheep
Thicker than water, thicker than thieves
Oh how deep the river is
We are blood, we are family
Hello, hello black sheep

From the streets to the gutters, we are sisters and brothers
We are blood, we are family
Hello, hello black sheep
