Never has protest music sounded this sweet. Michael Franti & Spearhead, eighteen years after vol. 1, have released "Stay Human vol. 2." It’s an album with a serious message but is bursting with positivity.

In the liner notes Franti says he hopes the music inspires you to hold onto optimism in challenging times like the ones we are living in today —knowing there are a whole bunch of humans around the world singing the same song.

With their trademark reggae grooves framing the songs and the plain spoken voice of Franti bringing the message of love to each track, "Stay Human vol. 2" is an accessible collection of uplifting socially conscious messages.

The album is the soundtrack to a film of the same name that documents Franti’s exploration of the world we live in and the album stands on it’s own as a heartwarming commentary on how we should overcome our struggles.
