"Harvest For The World", originally written and recorded by The Isley Brothers, has been a lifelong favorite for both Andy and producer Michael Carey. The lyrics dealing with social equality, dignity, veterans issues and making a better world for our children are as relevant today as when first written.

The track features a dream team of musicians including Bobby Watson on bass (Rufus, Michael Jackson), Tony Patler on keys (Chaka Khan) and M.B. Gordy on percussion (The Doobie Brothers).

The video was directed and edited by Barry McGuire who's credits include Dr. Dre, Lady Gaga, Reeve Carney, Akon and OK GO among others.

All babies together
Everyone a seed
Half of us are satisfied
Half of us in need
Love’s bountiful in us
Tarnished by our greed
Oh when will there be a harvest for the world
Right... when will there be… tell me... oh Lord

A nation planted
So concerned with gain
As the seasons come and go
Greater is the pain
And far too many
Feeling the strain
Oh, when will there be a harvest for the world
Oh when will there be... oh tell me...

Gather every man
Gather every woman
Celebrate your lives
Give thanks for your children (No)

Gather everyone (Gather everyone)
Gather all together (Gather all together)
Overlookin’ none (Overlookin’ none)
Hoping life gets better… for the world
Hoping life gets better… yeah when will there be
's all we need...

Dress me up for battle
When all I want is peace
Those of us who pay the price
Come home with the least
And nation after nation
Turning into beasts
Oh, when will there be a harvest for the world

Alright tell me...
Please tell me...
When will there be... {Harvest for the world}
A harvest... {Harvest for the world}
When will there be... {Harvest for the world}
A harvest for the world now... {Harvest for the world}
