The video of Michael Franti and Spearhead’s new hit song ‘Hey Hey Hey’ was just released on Yahoo! Music. It is yet another of the upbeat songs with a message on the latest Michael Franti and Spearhead album ‘The Sound of Sunshine.’ The upbeat song again reveals Franti's penchant for living a full life and supporting the welfare of all people.

Although the album was only released in late September “Hey Hey Hey,” is already at number 12 on the charts and climbing. The video was produced and directed by Michael himself and filmed during his U.S. Falltour. It shows him as he walks the streets of cities singing “Hey Hey Hey” and provides glimpses into the daily lives of ordinary people. The song itself is an upbeat reminder that human life is precious and

“No matter how life is today
There’s just one thing that I got to say
I won’t let another moment slip away.”

Michael Franti continues his positive message as the song continues,

“There’s a crack in the gutter where a flower grows
Reminding me that everything is possible
Yeah reminding me that nothing is impossible
You gotta live for the one that you love you know
You gotta love for the life that you live you know.”

His comment on the song is,

“‘Hey Hey Hey’ is about overcoming adversity and appreciating every second that we have on this planet. The video is centered around the lives of everyday people as we all experience rough times and lean on each other for support and to help lift our spirits.”

May we all recognize our interconnectedness and interdependence so that all beings thrive and prosper in an atmosphere of love and peace. And continue to rock on.
