“‘Unity’ was created immediately after the incredibly cowardly and brutal murder of George Floyd,” Hagen said in a statement. “A song about the indestructible dream of charity. From the longing for human values, for social unity and justice.”

Hagen also announced she’ll be releasing a new album next year off Groenland Records, her Berlin-based label. It will mark her first album in a decade, following 2011’s Volksbeat, her tenth LP.
