New Album STAY HUMAN 2­­ Due This Summer

Michael Franti & Spearhead are set to tour the U.S. this summer, beginning June 1 at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado. The “Stay Human” Tour comes in anticipation of Franti’s upcoming new album Stay Human 2, due this June, and provides the soundtrack for Franti’s forthcoming self-directed documentary, Stay Human.

Of the upcoming tour, new music and film, Franti explains, “I’ve traveled the globe making music and throughout the years I’ve always hoped that it could inspire small steps towards making the world a better place. Struggling with the challenges of the world I began filming my new documentary, Stay Human, telling the stories of heroic everyday people who helped me to discover more deeply what it means to be and STAY HUMAN.”
Michael Franti began writing music as a way to process both the political landscape of the late 1980s. He came with the unique sounds and ideas of his Bay Area upbringing. In 1994, Franti formed Michael Franti & Spearhead. Franti noticed inequality and injustice both at home and abroad as he toured with his band, . The band released their seminal Stay Human album in 2000, reflecting on the unjust nature of the death penalty among other themes, to make sense of our common humanity in juxtaposition to near constant violations of human rights.

MICHAEL FRANTI DIRECTS STAY HUMAN DOCUMENTARY

 

Franti released his first self-directed documentary I Know I’m Not Alone in 2005 to widespread critical acclaim. The film depicts his mission for peace in the Middle East, with a focus on the human cost of war. Michael Franti has visited warzones in Iraq, Israel, and Palestine. He found common connections playing music to both soldiers and civilians regardless of affiliation.
Michael Franti & Spearhead continue to foster the community both on and off stage hosting large yoga meet ups prior to each show and with Michael and his wife Sara’s foundation Do It For The Love, a wish granting nonprofit that brings those with life threatening illnesses, veterans and children with severe challenges to concerts.
His recent musical projects have included the Billboard #1 single “The Sound of Sunshine” (2010). Full-length releases All the People (2013) and SOULROCKER (2016), have topped the Billboard rock album charts at #4 and #5, respectively.
