The single was released on Tuesday (Jan. 9) morning, as the group's official Twitter account shared the profound track specifying the focal points of the track and its matched visual which include immigration reform, the prison industrial complex, gun violence, and police brutality. These issues are critical for our families, friends, communities, and world.

R&B songstress and former group regular Fergie does not feature on the new song.

We've never broken up officially, I guess we're just on a break. Unlike more recent examples of the band, however, this song lyrically makes us think, giving us more to sink our teeth into beyond "boom, boom, pow".

"Honestly, I would have loved to be able to do my album in one tenth of the time, do a Black Eyed Peas album in that same time, tour both, have another child".
