«Freedom and acceptance are something to celebrate», says Colton Ford, «especially in this season of Pride»!
Pop-inspired and mashed with Caribbean Calypso, the song is meant to inspire and get your hips shaking! «We have come a long way in our fight to be seen, heard, acknowledged and respected and we have a lot to be thankful for», Ford continues, «but there is still work to be done, and we are more powerful doing it together than apart».
The song follows Ford’s previous releases: «Stronger», about a relationship with self and «Stay», about a relationship with someone else.
«Unity» expands on the theme of relationship, but focuses on the power of our coming together, united in our demand for change. Written and produced by Colton Ford, Ron Schrader, and Spin Sista (Woop Woop Productions), Colton Ford’s «Unity» is being distributed by Woop Woop Music and is available on all major digital platforms, along with its remixes: Spin’s Club Banger remix and Ron’s Get Down with Your Bad Self remix. The focus of the music video for «Unity» is people. Diversity. A celebration of our differences as well as what we all have in common,
