Valerie Orth Shares Political Song “I Believe We Will Win”
- Brooklyn-based electro alt-pop singer-songwriter Valerie Orth has shared a political song “I Believe We Will Win”.
Valerie Orth said of the song, “'I Believe We Will Win' gives hope and motivation. No matter how disenfranchised so many of us feel, we must vote in this election. Hopefully, this song will inspire others to get involved beyond voting, too. We need to do whatever it takes, whatever we're capable of, to make our voices heard and change the American systems that are clearly not working.”
She continued, “I originally wrote it when I first heard the phrase at an anti-Trump rally in 2016, then continued writing and producing it as local protests for justice grew globally. In the final production, you'll hear “I believe we will win” in over a dozen languages, from the Americas, Africa, Asia, and Europe. I'm releasing this song right before the US election to spread much-needed hope in the final days before the most important election of our lifetime, and to provide a soundtrack on your way to the polls. I can't wait to share this single - and all the hope and voices included - with you. ✊✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿”
- She will release her upcoming sophomore album “Rabbit Hole” on December 4th. Throughout the album there are riffs on '80s pop, '90s rock, and hip hop as well as today's electronic music.
The album features the intentional cultural interplay. “In the production process, we began exploring the disappearance of definitive lines in gender, genre, time and cultures, and how technology relates to that concept,” Valerie Orth explains. “In contrast to what was traditionally taught, time is not always linear, gender is not binary, and cultures that were so clearly distinct from one another before often blend together. And technology plays an enormous role in all of it.”
