About the new single, singer Mat Ajjarapu states: “I wrote this song about my frustration with the lack of progress America has made on issues such as the Trayvon Martin case or the Sandy Hook massacre. It’s like everyone here is mad about those things, but no one actually has any power to change them. When I wrote it… I had been listening to both Sam Cooke’s and Aretha Franklin’s version of a “A Change is Gonna Come,” as well as “What’s Going On” by Marvin Gaye. And I remember trying to imagine if Sam Cooke or Marvin Gaye could somehow come back from the dead and see how things had changed in 30 or 40 years, how might they feel? I think they’d probably feel pretty disappointed at a minimum”
