X Ambassadors are back with a brand new track, and it's one with purpose.
Titled "Hoping," the song is a declaration of exactly what its title and lyrics insinuate: Hope in a time when many people may not have a lot of it. "Though my faith is shaky, I got to keep on hoping / Keep on hoping / It all feels broken / Got to keep your hope alive," X Ambassadors' lead singer Sam Harris sings over heartfelt piano and a somber drum beat.
In line with the inspirational message, all proceeds from the song in the next six months will go to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which has been fighting Donald Trump's immigration ban. And as X Ambassador's drummer, Adam Levin, explains, the song itself is a response to the Trump presidency.
