The New SOULROCKER Album features songs that infuse acoustic, electronic, reggae, dancehall and natural earth elements, all with the message of people coming together to support each other and the planet.
“I make music for one reason; I care about people and I care about the planet we live in. Right now the world needs music that speaks out against hate and violence, that speaks up in support of the planet, in support of justice for all of humanity — and also makes you dance!” – Michael Franti
We invite you to join the GOOD TO BE ALIVE MOVEMENT where people across the globe are coming together to give voice to the positive things in their lives and taking small steps towards a world where everyone can say it’s #goodtobealivetoday.
Good To Be Alive Today (Acoustic Remix) – Available Now on iTunes
“Good to be Alive Today” is a song about gratitude. A song to remind us of the good in the world, especially 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. –Michael Franti

“The new SOULROCKER Album and the upcoming SOULROCKER TOUR is all about making music that changes people’s lives, removing barriers between us, standing up for what we believe and rockin’ out so hard that when we’re done, we believe that anything is possible!” – Michael Franti
The New album SOULROCKER is filled with songs of inspiration for the challenging times we are in, celebrating people and the planet and standing up for what we believe! — In our Storyteller Sessions I share the personal root and inspiration behind each song on the new album, why I wrote, them and an acoustic video version of each one. I’m super excited to share the first of this series with you…”My Lord,” a song that celebrates the many ways we all find peace.

“Crazy For You” is a song that 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. — I invite you to share this with the people in your life that ground you on this crazy journey we’re all sharing. — “If we all go crazy, then I want to go crazy with you.”
