June 3, 2016 – MICHAEL FRANTI & SPEARHEAD new album SOULROCKER is available today and debuts at #1 on iTunes Alternative album chart!  Their ninth studio release, SOULROCKER features the single “Crazy for You.” Franti comments, “Thesong calls out some of the crazy things that are happening in the world today and celebrates the people in your life that you can lean on, that keep the hope alive no matter what’s happening around you. I wrote this song for my wife Sara, who is my rock and keeps me grounded no matter how crazy my life or the world gets.”
Franti’s new video “Good To Be Alive Today” achieves over one million views as it sees its official post on Upworthy after a week-long dark post.  View the video here: https://www.facebook.com/Upworthy/videos/1286232838084238/
The video was shot in Colorado and directed by singer, songwriter and musician MICHAEL FRANTI, who says the song is “about gratitude…A song to remind us of the good in the world, on the days when our souls are rocked by all of the bad news that surrounds us. A reminder to be grateful for all we have, at the same time, to tenaciously stand behind things in life that serve the greater good– getting one step closer to a world where EVERYONE can all say “it’s good to be alive today.” Franti adds that “…we are super humbled the incredible support of our new video and invite you to stay tuned for how you can be part of the GOOD TO BE ALIVE MOVEMENT where people across the globe are already starting to come together to give voice to the positive things in their lives and make small steps towards a world where everyone can all say “it’s good to be alive today.”  Stay connected to the song and movement behind it here: https://www.michaelfranti.com/home/#good-to-be-alive-video-premiere
Co-produced with Jamaican producers Stephen “Di Genius” McGregor (son of reggae luminary Freddie McGregor) and Dwayne “Supa Dups” Chin Quee (known for his work with artists like Bruno Mars and John Legend) SOULROCKER again shows Franti‘s singular ability to channel frustration into music that’s both thought-provoking and triumphantly hopeful.
