NEW VIDEO: John Legend Remakes Anti-War Anthem

John Legend and The Roots have a new video called “I Cant Write Left-Handed.” This track is a remake of Billy Withers anti-war anthem. The song was originally recorded at the end of the Vietnam War in 1972 and appears on their new album Wake Up!

The video was released a day after President Obama declared the end of the U.S. combat mission in Iraq yesterday. Legend says:

“As I record this now, we’re coming toward what we hope is the end of another war of choice,”

I could not think of a more appropriate time to release it.
