Video: The Roots Drop New Song For Civil Rights Documentary

Posted by funkatop On February - 6 - 2012

The Roots - Ain't Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me Around

The Roots released their version of the old classic spiritual called “Ain’t Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me ‘Round” a little ways back in October of 2010 complete with some footage of the civil rights movement. The newly released version focuses a tad more on the band on the OkayPlayer site here which has resurfaced again, but this time it’s officially being announced for the album’s release on February 14th, 2012 on a compilation titled Soundtrack For A Revolution which accompanies the documentary release (that we don’t have a date for yet. Hip us if you know).

The original video below shows the song alongside more footage than the newly released version, which may insinuate that the older version is closer to what you can expect to see in the actual documentary. The soundtrack is available for pre-order on iTunes and it features a virtual Who’s Who including The Roots, John Legend, Anthony Hamilton, Angie Stone, Wyclef, TV on the Radio, Joss Stone, and many more.  The video also features Tunde Adebimpe and Kyp Malone from TV On The Radio as well.
