Yesterday Young Galaxy released a brand new single called "Stay For Real", put out in reaction to, well, a lot of what is going on in the world today. The haunting song features Catherine McCandless' ethereal voice encouraging everyone to fight on.
They're releasing it independently, and partnering with Plus1 so all net proceeds from the sale of the song go to defending the rights of the marginalized through PIVOT (Canada), ACLU (USA), and W.A.V.E (EU). The band said in their press release: “We can no longer stand idly by and rely only on the people who shape the world for us culturally and politically. We must stay true to ourselves and feel the courage of our convictions in the face of polarizing political and personal views. But most of all, we must show empathy, compassion and love - even when faced with increasing existential threats, and fear and hostility. This song is a statement of intent, as we enter a new era, to hopefully serve as a reminder to ourselves of what our responsibilities are as artists in this troubled time.”
