New song : Shook up the world

Joe Henry has released today a new song called 'Shook up the World' in memory of the great muhammad Ali. 

You can buy it f.e. on his website , but it's also available on all the general known Digital Music providers. All profits will go to the Muhammad Ali Center.

Dear friends,
Two weeks ago I wrote a new song meditating on the life, recent death, and enduring legacy of Muhammad Ali: a brazenly courageous ambassador of peace and self-possession in my lifetime.

Days later, on the coattails of a wrapped project, I found myself in a studio in Hollywood with time to spare, surrounded by my son and band of brothers; and I seized the opportunity— both recording and mixing this song over the course of a few hours.

Observing an impulse of immediacy, and in the spirit of deep gratitude, I offer the song here and now.

Meet me at this juncture if you will, and play it loud if you do: as the man himself exemplified, this is not the time for demurring half-measures.

Joe Henry
