Sola Rosa Releases New Song “For The Mighty Dollar” featuring Kevin Mark Trail
- New Zealand artist Andrew Spraggon, aka Sola Rosa teamed up with British R&B singer-songwriter Kevin Mark Trail to release a new song “For The Mighty Dollar”.
The song is the second single off of his upcoming album “Chasing The Sun”, which is set to be released on September 25, 2020.
The accompanying short film was directed by Askew One, who shot documents the environmental and societal impact of the COVID 19 lockdown on Sola Rosa hometown of Auckland City in New Zealand.
Sola Rosa said of the message behind the track, “Money has been placed as the most important thing in the world and the divide between the rich and poor is still very wide. Many governments and corporations are still corrupt. Inequality, sexism, racism and injustice continue to reign. The aim of the song is to get people to think about the life we are living. The Covid-19 pandemic has given us time to question our values and direction, personally and globally, but what do we want? Who are we? What do we need? Where is the love? Could we be living better with each other and the planet as a whole?”
- He continued, “The scope of what could be created for this video evolved as we progressed through the various levels of lockdown. It’s a really significant time in the world right now, and so much has happened in the last three months. The theme of the song is particularly poignant, particularly in this moment. Ultimately all our systems are so interdependent and tightly bound to capitalism and I wanted to bring that sense of increasing anxiety into play - leaving the viewer to ask themselves, is this really what we want?”
The album is available to pre-order here.
