According to lead singer Amanda Reifer,“It’s a great opportunity and we’re happy to perform in a positive way in our community. We wanted the lyrics to be relatable; while we were writing it we wanted to find a way to not make it sound preachy but still get the message across.”

The new single was released on iTunes on May 14. The music video was premiered on VEVO on June 6.

My best friend and I once got lost in Connecticut. We were juniors in high school, it was 2004, and we were lost in the state we’d grown up in together. We kept driving, hopeless and amused, using the signs on the road and our spotty intuition as our guides. We sang songs in the car as our cell phones, incapable of no more than a phone call, sat like bricks in our pockets. There wasn’t a map of the world conveniently in the palm of our hands, no app to see how many people had…
