The Reverend Shawn Amos Says Goodbye To "2017" In New Single



New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Following the summer release of his single and music video "Ain't Gonna Name Names," critically acclaimed American roots artist, The Reverend Shawn Amos presents the second song from his upcoming album, The Reverend Shawn Amos Breaks It Down. "2017" is now available on iTunes, Spotify and all digital music sellers via Amos' own Put Together Music imprint (via distributor AWAL). With a string section reminiscent of B.B. King's "The Thrill Is Gone" and Marvin Gaye's What's Going On, "2017" is a timely commentary on our divided discourse — and a heartfelt plea to listen to our better angels.

"2017" is one in a series of what Amos calls "21st century freedom songs," inspired by the gospel-born protest songs of the 1960s American civil rights movement. Recorded in Memphis' Royal Studios with surviving members of Al Green's lauded 1970s rhythm section, "2017" calls listeners to "open up our hearts and brains/Think about what our children's eyes have seen/In the year 2017." The song also features vocals from Memphis-based vocal group, The Masqueraders.

The track was co-produced by Amos and album producer, James Saez who also mixed. Amos says his forthcoming album, The Reverend Shawn Amos Breaks It Down, is meant to "remind of us our commonality and our brotherhood. I've been listening to a lot of music from the Staples Singers, Freedom Singers, and other '60s blues, folk and gospel acts. Music meant to stir our conscience. We're living in similar times; We need songs to help us stand up."
