The new single from eclectic singer/songwriter Gene Owens, \'The Lonesome Death of Abeer Qassim Hamza\' tells the true story of the rape and killing of a 14-year-old Iraqi girl by U.S. soldiers. Brian De Palma\'s recent film, \'Redacted\' was based upon the same events. In the age old folk tradition of re-envisioning old arrangements, the chorus & music is borrowed from Bob Dylan\'s topical folk song \'The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carrol\'.
