Formed in 1992 by four Berklee alumni, powerhouse genre-bending collective Lettuce recently released a seriously dope music video for their take on Tears For Fears’ “Everybody Wants To Rule The World”. Off their Grammy-nominated 6th studio album Elevate, released just last Summer, the single by the self-proclaimed funk-jazz-soul-hip-hop-psychedelic-jam-art-rock-experimental-avant-garde ensemble also comes with a beautiful message of peace and hope. “With greed and self-absorption taking a center seat in the society we live in, Lettuce wanted to put out a song and video that portrays the power and plight of the real human heart and the strength that comes from regular and consistent support that is only found in tight communities and family-style living,” shares the band. “We wanted to show the myriad of different styles that humans can embody and how strong we can be together when we listen to and care for each other using patience, kindness, respect, and love. We now humbly present to you all, ‘Everybody Wants to Rule The World’! Proper respect to the originals. One love; one world. Peace, Justice & Unity.” The striking visual, directed by Chad A. Marshall, was shot throughout Los Angeles and beautifully captures the essence and strength of the human spirit and the innumerable types of people that shape the world. Check it out below.
