When I got to Hamburg my buddy Rico played the song “We Are the People” at our gigs. I never heard it before and thought it was really cool, especially his arrangement. I hoped he wrote it but he told me it was by Empire of the Sun and was a huge hit throughout Europe. I guess it wasn't as big in the States, or I was just oblivious (probably that) so it didn't reach me. We wound up playing it at all of our live gigs but in a rock style - the original is more electronic. I eventually talked the guys into recording it to put on Rico's album but he wound up deciding not to. I loved the song so much I had to make my own version.
"We Are the People" appears as a bonus track on my album "Shadows". And as always feel free to leave our thoughts below...
