Toronto, ON - Since her groundbreaking debut, 1964’s It’s My Way!, Buffy Sainte-Marie has been a trailblazer and a tireless advocate. Today the innovative artist shares new song “You Got To Run,” a collaboration that features Tanya Tagaq and announces details of Medicine Songs, the follow-up to the Polaris Music Prize and JUNO Award-winning 2015 album Power in the Blood. Medicine Songs will be released November 10, 2017 via True North Records.
Buffy Saint-Marie's explains the sentiment behind the new album "... is a collection of front line songs about unity and resistance – some brand new and some classics – and I want to put them to work. These are songs I’ve been writing for over fifty years, and what troubles people today are still the same damn issues from 30-40-50 years ago: war, oppression, inequity, violence, rankism of all kinds, the pecking order, bullying, racketeering and systemic greed. Some of these songs come from the other side of that: positivity, common sense, romance, equity and enthusiasm for life..
"You Got To Run (Spirit Of The Wind)" is the powerful lead single from Buffy Saint-Marie's new album Medicine Songs..
