always with the end of august into early september, it feels important to remember hurricane katrina. in 2005, tv on the radio released their own contribution, the single dry drunk emperor as a free digital download and personally attached their own heartfelt message as a dedication to the entire country.
“we (tv on the radio) were back in the studio thinking and feeling again and made this song for all our everybody. in the absence of a true leader we must not forget that we are still together. hearts are sick, minds must change; it is our hope that this song inspires, comforts, fosters courage, and reminds us this darkness cannot last if we work together. let us help each other, heal each other, look after one another. the human heart is our new capitol. this song is for you, us, we, them. it is free, pass it on. to those affected by hurrican katrina: new york city’s heart is with you. stay strong! we love you.”
