LIVING COLOUR 2020 Video 'This Is The Life' Featuring Footage Of GEORGE FLOYD Protests

LIVING COLOUR   has released a new video for its classic song   "This Is The Life" . The clip includes footage of the peaceful protests that have swelled across the U.S. and around the world over the death of Minnesota man   George Floyd   at the hands of police. The original version of   "This Is The Life"   appeared on   LIVING COLOUR 's 1990 album   "Time's Up" .

In a statement accompanying the new video's release,   LIVING COLOUR   said: " 'Time's Up'   was released 30 years ago and sadly we're still fighting the same fight. If you don't like the current agenda, it's your responsibility to go out an VOTE!"

On May 25,   Floyd , a 46-year-old black man, was killed in an incident caught on camera. A police officer,   Derek Chauvin , kneeled on his neck for nearly ten minutes while   Floyd   was handcuffed.   Chauvin   faces second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter charges, while his former colleagues   J. Alexander Kueng ,   Thomas K. Lane   and   Tou Thao   are charged with one count of aiding and abetting second-degree murder and aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter.

A few days after   Floyd 's death,   LIVING COLOUR   guitarist   Vernon Reid   took to his   Twitter   to write: " Of all the shocking mobile phone recorded extra judicial Police killings, the murder of   George Floyd   is the most depraved exercise in contemptuous disregard for human life I've ever seen. Next time you see it- if you can stomach it- pay attention to the hand in pocket posture."

LIVING COLOUR 's latest studio album,   "Shade" , was released in September 2017 via   Megaforce Records .
