“National Anthem represents the America that I have always experienced. I wrote this song in 2019, and performed it out all over the country on tour last year. I watched beautiful, mixed crowds made up of so many different types of people RAGE to this in UNITY. I had planned on releasing this at a future date, but I’m taking the most recent (and recurring) events as a sign that the world needs this right fucking now.”
De’Wayne released his EP Don't Be Afraid in 2017. Check out the song and the full statement below.
