FIND A BETTER WAY - THIRD SINGLE DEBUTS SEPTEMBER 30TH 2022
Find A Better Way is the third and final single, and title track of The Commoners 2022 album. A rock anthem to its core, “Find A Better Way” carries a message that encapsulates the entirety of the record. With growing uncertainties, society faces challenges previously unseen, leaving the collective in a perpetual state of questioning, with doubt directed towards governments, public leaders, and our own neighbours. From the aftermath of COVID-19, the increasing mental health crisis in North America, war crimes in Ukraine, and the explosion of social movements & protests, one thought unites us all—we need to find a better way to co-exist on this planet. “Find A Better Way” takes an inward look at confronting our tumultuous past, and accepting personal accountabilities to uncover the strength needed to seek a solution.
