Available in all online stores and streaming platforms from the 21st of October 2021, the timing of the release of this song could not be at a more fitting time as our World Leaders are realising that TIME IS RUNNING OUT for our planet and unless we “change our ways” as the lyrics state, we will suffer calamity.
We have never before faced so many diverse challenges across the whole world at the same time and this track and especially the music video which accompanies it, certainly highlight most of these challenges.
“Who’s Gonna Save the World” was first composed in 1983 by Howard Conder when he and his wife Lesley first set up London Music Studios in Tampa Florida USA. Since then there have been several versions of this song and now this latest version is going to be released in the coming weeks.
George William Musulira Kiberu, known to Howard as William since they first met in Uganda in 1994 has co-produced all the versions since 2012 including the latest version in 2021.
Basically, the song is about the state of the world from an ecological and spiritual perspective. This one line taken from a verse might help to understand where the song is coming from: “Man has taken giant steps in technology but will he ever get it right with ecology, ozone layers and chemicals, pesticides and waste, to mention only but a few to show why mans in haste.” and another verse “The world awakens yet again to another day but does it recognise the signs afraid it doesn’t say, unless we change all our ways, no time for indecision, the Universe will look at Earth and hold us in derision.”
The music is powerful just as the lyrics are and both together, we hope will inspire you for there is hope for mankind’s future and it does not rely on our world leaders, but on our creator. Bob Marley mentioned some of these issues in his song “One Love” for Bob was well aware of what we all would face in the future but he constantly reiterated this optimistic line in his song “LET’S GET TOGETHER AND FEEL ALRIGHT”.
