“Change” is a collaboration between Charlie Puth and legendary folk singer James Taylor. It appears on Puth’s upcoming album Voicenotes, out May 11. The 26-year-old singer premiered the protest track during Saturday’s March For Our Lives. Fittingly, he’s dedicated the song to all of the Parkland students in Florida and any lives lost to senseless gun violence around the world.
Ahead of his performance, he spoke on Instagram live about his latest offering.
“It’s about everybody, as humans we all help each other and that song came about through collaboration. So if people at that march on Saturday see me perform that song…hopefully something inspirational will come out of them where they leave that march that day when they leave all that big vibe of inspiration and they’re back in the city life where people are pretty self consumed with what they’re doing, they’re going to take that with them. This is the most important song I ever wrote.”
Give the fantastic track a listen below. While I love the duet, Charlie should consider recording another version featuring many of his fellow artists, and bill it as a charity single. Don’t you think? Weigh in below.
