Single I Mickelson – UNarmed American
New single UNarmed American by Mickelson
Mickelson’s new video single UNarmed American will be premiered on November 19th, 2021 on the renowned website Americana UK. UNarmed American is the opening track from Mickelson’s forthcoming fourth full-length album ‘Known To Be Unknown’ that is set for release on April 15th, 2022.
On this album, Mickelson expresses his concern about the stress that a lot of Americans have to deal with by being an American right now. We would appreciate it very much if you would like to feather the video single by considering premiering it on your website. As usual, we will share your post through our social media network and on Mickelson’s socials.
Mickelson about the video: “In America, the majority of people do not own guns however the minority holds all the control over gun rights and legislation. Despite the consistency of gun violence and the mass shooting in the U.S., there has been no meaningful gun legislation in 25 years. This is a clear example of money and politics being more important than people-even children! Our politicians refuse to take a stand.
I wrote “UNarmed American” to give a voice to the majority of Americans, including responsible gun owners, who believe we can have reasonable gun control laws and still exercise our freedom. It’s not one or the other. We can do both!
When I produced the song I had played and sang all the tracks. But after I mixed it I decided it needed to feel like many people were expressing themselves so I called ten other Bay Area artists to come to my studio and lend their voices. Sam Chase, David Luning, Brad Brooks, Shannon Koehler, Jeremy Lyon, Jesse Brewster, Mick Shaffer, Josh Windmiller, Ken Newman, and Ben Morrison. Another lovely thing is that my daughter, Sadie Mickelson, participates in the video. The video was directed by Mike Sloat.”
