In honor of Black History Month, R&B veteran JOE has released a new video for a song he has titled “Our Anthem.”
A soulful and reflective track, with socially conscious visuals, the multi-Grammy nominated artist starts out singing The Star Spangled Banner and later borrows from Otis Redding’s classic, “Try A Little Tenderness.” Taking a stand to help improve our relations with one another, Joe simply asks, “Is this red white and blue, or black brown and white? / Ask yourself, is it wrong, or is it right?”
Along with the release he shared a short message, “Sometimes a walk and a little reflection helps put things into perspective! THIS IS “OUR ANTHEM”! #OURANTHEM #TENDERNESS w/love from me to you Black History Month!”
JOE is currently working on his next album, the follow-up to 2014’s Bridges, which is expected to be released later this year.
