The Wailers have contributed an exclusive new track titled “A Step for Mankind” to Oniric Records’ “Solutions for Dreamers: Season 3” compilation album. This compilation, to be released July 1, 2010, is the third in the Solutions for Dreamers series and all of the proceeds generated will go directly to the United Nations’ World Food Programme(WFP), an organization the Wailers have long been big supporters of. The World Food Programme is the world’s largest humanitarian agency and the United Nations’ frontline agency for hunger solutions. The WFP is committed to getting food to where it is needed, saving the lives of victims of war, civil conflict, and natural disasters. Each year, on average, WFP feeds more than 90 million people in more than 70 countries.
Both the Wailers and Oniric Records are inspired by the work the WFP does and are each honored to partner with them. The exclusive studio track The Wailers have recorded for “Solutions for Dreamers: Season 3”, “A Step for Mankind”, was written by the remarkable singer/songwriter Duane Stephenson. Renowned for his portrayal of love, culture and spirituality in his songwriting, Stephenson wrote this track as a call for world unity and peace, a common theme in many of the Wailers’ best known international hits. As the lead track on Solutions for Dreamers: Season 3, “A Step for Mankind” truly embodies what the SFD compilation series is all about. The driving force behind Oniric Records and the Solutions for Dreamers series is a passion for the well-being of our world and those within it, and “A Step for Mankind” walks hand in hand with that mission.
The Wailers try to do their part to create a better tomorrow for the people of the world and encourage you to do the same.
