“Franti has always spoken his mind through his music: from his early punk rock band Beatnigs, to the industrial-noise of Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy , to the conscious and soulful hip-hop of Spearhead. ‘In the past, we’ve touched on a lot of genres of music,’ Franti says, ‘but this is an album where all those things have been rolled into one. I feel this is our best record yet.’ Songs like Yell Fire! Time To Go Home are calls to action: in the streets, at home, and in our own hearts. Other songs such as I Know I’m Not Alone, an uplifting blast of hope, One Step Closer To You featuring a soulful backing vocal by Pink, and the beautiful Is Love Enough featuring reggae star Gentleman, tap into the album’s compassionate side.” – Read more
