Carole King Premieres New Song “One”
- American singer-songwriter Carole King re-recorded “One”, its original version is included her 1977 album "Simple Things".
This time, she shot the video for the song in the studio formerly known as A&M Studios.
The song has a political message to reflect her hopes for the midterm elections on November 6th. In the past, she had several times in performing for political stance.
Last year, she shared a previously unreleased version of her song “One Small Voice” in support of the Women’s March.
At the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Ultimate Women’s Power Luncheon in San Francisco in September, she appeared alongside Hillary Clinton to raise funds for congressional candidates.
Carole King said of the song:
"One of the things I want to encourage with this song is that people find the comity between them, find what they have in common and talk to each other with respect and listen to each other. I don’t know what’s going to happen with the midterms, but I believe there are more people who want the best and who will vote for a more positive political climate. There are many things playing against us — interference from other countries and blatant, naked voter suppression. But I’m praying for an outcome that will have a mitigating effect on all the fear and hatred. And I hope that this song will empower people in a way. Many of us feel powerless and I want to say you do have the power of one, and when you put your power of one with other people’s, you really do have the power."
