We think Far East Movement plan to vote Obama. Just a theory!
We’re used to hearing Far East Movement sing about partying, chicks, living their life, dirty basses, and well, “Jello,” but that doesn’t mean they’re not open to singing about something a smidge more important! Inspired by Obama’s #ForAll social media campaign, Far East Movement have written and recorded the brand-new, aptly titled new track “For All.”
Listen to Far East Movement’s “For All” after the jump.
Though it’s a little less clubby than their previous hits, “For All” is still extremely radio-ready and is slated to appear on their forthcoming Dirty Bass album reissue. In their own words, Far East Movement’s Kev Nish explains, “We wanted to create an anthem around the inspirational ideals that people around the world are entitled to, no matter your race, religion, sexual preference, political or social views. We use the crowd at our concerts as the example. When you’re at a show experiencing live music, no matter who you’re next to, you’re experiencing that magic together.”
Unfortunately, we have to wait until Thursday to see the video, but it’s prolly going to be worth it since the clip features tons of celebrities (including Snoop Dogg(!!) and Russell Simmons). And also, do we think this new jam miiiight encourage Obama to get out there and DANCE? Just wondering…
