The Real Revolution | Playing For Change Band
The Real Revolution is the first complete Playing For Change studio album featuring members of the Playing For Change Band as well as special guests. It is a purpose-driven album with a compelling message of connecting the world through music. The songs embody the spirit of love, truth, and unity that binds us all together and leads us from the darkness to the light.
The powerful lead single, showcasing the vocals of Congolese musicians Mermans Mosengo and Jason Tamba and also titled “The Real Revolution,” lives in the spirit of the people and offers an empowering message that true change comes from within; Fear is the enemy.
The second release, “Me Pierdo,” written by Pierre Minetti, is a perfect blend of reggae and Latin music and speaks of the journey to our inner nature and the longing for freedom while feeling lost in a world full of injustice and stress.
The Real Revolution album and focus track “Run” will be released on June 24, 2022. “Run” is an uplifting song written by PFC Band member Claire Finley that inspires feelings of hopefulness, focusing on the good in life instead of dwelling on the past.
The release of The Real Revolution album commences the 20-year anniversary of Playing For Change, with exclusively designed cover art by Neville Garrick (longtime Art Director for Bob Marley and the Wailers), and perfectly represents the PFC belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people.
