From Emmett Till to George Floyd, the debate over the value of human life has been ongoing throughout history. The Grammy-nominated viral R&B/Soul sensations known as The Hamiltones kick off Black History Month with a plea for humanity in the official music video for “My Life Matters”. Directed by The Last American B-Boy, the video is now available to give a watch below.
“Equality is not conversed, it’s exerted” –The Hamiltones
“My Life Matters” is from The Hamiltones’ powerful new album ‘1964’, which was released on the 57th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s iconic ‘I Have A Dream’ speech at the March on Washington, and the 65th anniversary of the high-profile death of Emmett Till. With a recording from Congressman John Lewis, ‘1964’ serves as a timely tribute to the Civil Rights Movement in the U.S., while providing a moving soundtrack to the current global movement for racial justice and equality.
Available on all digital streaming platforms via Young Vintage/Dame Inc/Common Cents/EMPIRE, ‘1964’ serves as The Hamiltones’ full-length follow-up to 2019’s ‘Watch The Ton3s‘ EP and February’s ‘Watch The Ton3s (The B Side)‘ EP. The album will also serve as the official soundtrack for the Restore Black Wall Street 2021 campaign.
