Rider Shafique and The Bug have shared a video for their new collaboration, 'BURN'.

The track was released via The Bug's Pressure label on June 19, to coincide with Bandcamp donating its share of sales to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. It features lyrics from Shafique that address the death of George Floyd as well as the struggle for racial justice. You can watch the video above.

All proceeds from the release, which can be purchased via Bandcamp, will be directed towards Shafique's charity, I-DENTITY, which provides Black children in the south-west of England with books written by Black authors.
