"You've got a limited amount of time to write the greatest song you've ever heard.
But when it works, it's magic."The chemistry is evident on collaborations with multi-platinum Australian producer/songwriter Adrian Newman, who co-wrote "Long Ride Home," "Closer To You," "Say Goodbye" and "I'm Alive (Life Sounds Like)", as well as with the seven-time Grammy-nominated Canadian production team The Matrix, who produced and co-wrote the tracks "" and "On and On."Sam Hollander, another collaborator who has worked with chart-topping acts like Train, One Direction and Katy Perry, came on for the songs "Wherever You Are" and "I Don't Wanna Go." Franti says, "He also comes from a similar musical experience as I do, growing up when rap, punk and reggae were merging.
In 2005, he made the film "I Know I'm Not Alone" about his travels through Iraq, Palestine and Israel."I made a commitment to myself years ago that I wouldn't just read about what was happening in the world," he says.
"I needed to go and experience it."It was on these trips that he realized people don't necessarily want to hear songs that bluntly address the ills of the world but rather songs that will offer them some escape from their difficulties."I wouldn't want to live in a society where anger is a force that gets things done," Franti says.
