Watch Neil Young’s New Resistance Anthem Released Just in Time for Fourth of July
“We made a record we wanted to share with you,” Canadian rocker Neil Young said in a Facebook post. “We played with a bunch of people … total strangers in the same room on a full moon, 65 of us. It was very great. We had a great time. Enjoy.”
Young is referring to his new Neil Young + Promise of the Real music video, “Children of Destiny,” which urges listeners to “stand up for what you believe, resist the powers that be.”
Young opens the song singing:
Stand up for what you believe,
resist the powers that be
Preserve the land and save the seas for the children of destiny
The children of you and me.
The song goes on to say:
Should goodness ever lose
And evil steal the day
Should happy sing the blues
And peaceful fade away
What would you do?
What would you say?
How would you act on that new day?
After releasing the video, Young posted this video on Facebook:
