Tom Morello Teams Up With Shea Diamond and Dan Reynolds for ‘Stand Up’ Charity Song

Tom Morello has unveiled his new song “Stand Up,” a high-octane collaboration with Shea Diamond, Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons and The Bloody Beetroots.

On the urgent, hard-rocking track, which dropped Thursday (July 2), the collective artists rail against police brutality, racism and white privilege.

“When I call the police/ Will they just kill me?/ Will they just kill you?/ When I call the police/ Will they just protect me/ ‘Cause I’m white-skinned too?/ Stand up/ ‘Cause you are standing for nothing/ Just shut up/ Cause your words mean nothing,” Reynolds screams on the chorus before trading verses with Diamond about police corruption and the danger it poses to Black lives.

Proceeds from the track will be split between a number of nonprofits focused on the fight for racial justice, including the NAACP, Colin Kaepernick’s Know Your Rights Camp, the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Marsha P. Johnson Institute. Additionally, Interscope Records and KIDinaKORNER will donate an amount equal to the artists’ record royalties derived from streams of the track over the next three years.

Check out the politically-charged collab between Morello and his fellow artist-activists below.
