X-Ambassadors have given us a gorgeous new song with big love. “Hoping” is a song we wrote in the days following the 2017 presidential election," drummer Adam Levin told Billboard. "The day after the election we woke up scared, and we’ve woken up scared every day since. We decided to turn that fear into action, and wrote a song." All proceeds from the song in the next six months will go to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)
Front man Sam Harris added in a statement, "We will continue to fight against sexism, racism, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, homophobia, xenophobia, and the pervasive intolerance being encouraged under our current administration. As long as there are those of us who suffer and experience injustice in this world, we will continue to use our music and our voices to speak up. Our resistance is one of love and hope."
