Neil Young has made a video for ‘Children of Destiny’, his new song with Promise of the Real.
The song is a political charged anti-Trump song urging Americans to “stand up for what you believe” with a backdrop of flags, fighters and children marching.
In a post Neil Young said:
Thanks so much for your response to Children of Destiny! This is a heartfelt message to people all around the world, our home. We hope this song resonates with you and gives you strength to know that you are not alone. Resist those who lash out against our positive message with violence, name calling and negativity. We are concerned for our Democracy, Environment and Freedom. Nothing will ever stop us from standing up. We gathered together on the full moon to record our song. Here is a new video of that moment!
Love and Respect,
The lyrics read
“Stand up for what you believe, resist the powers that be/ Preserve the land and save the seas for the children of destiny/ The children of you and me.”
Should goodness ever lose
And evil steal the day
Should happy sing the blues
And peaceful fade away
What would you do?
What would you say?
How would you act on that new day?
Young has also issued an orchestrated version of the track.
