The song, written and performed by SonaBLAST! recording artist Ben Sollee is remixed by DJ 2nd Nature. The video features footage of Barack Obama's acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention and is shot and directed by Ty Risby, edited by Big Sky's Cristina Cingone, and produced by Michael Lobikis of Sound Lounge.

"Whatever people's political orientation may be, this track speaks to the country's want and desire to hear some honest and clear words from our political candidates in this volatile climate," says Stray Dog Music's Erik Steinert.
