Sixx:A.M. Presents: Artists For Recovery have released a charity single called Maybe It’s Time, as part of an industry-wide initiative to draw attention to the opioid crisis and to raise funds to serve the recovery community and save lives. The track also features Slipknot‘s Corey Taylor, Def Leppard‘s Joe Elliott, Slash, Brantley Gilbert, Five Finger Death Punch‘s Ivan Moody, AWOLNATION and Bad Wolves‘ Tommy Vext.
The idea for the song was conceived by Nikki Sixx, co-founder of Mötley Crüe and Sixx:A.M., recovery spokesperson and advocate, and one of the leading public figures fighting to destigmatise substance use disorders and recovery. Maybe It’s Time is timed to launch National Recovery Month in September, starting on International Overdose Awareness Day (31st August 2020) and continuing through to International Recovery Day (30th September 2020).
All artist royalties from the song are being donated to The Global Recovery Initiatives Foundation (GRI) to support those in early recovery, with a matching contribution from Better Noise Music. Major entertainment industry companies including Live Nation, Ticketmaster, iHeart, Pandora, SiriusXM, Entercom and many others have come together on this project to raise awareness and save lives.
“I am proud to bring together these artists to help raise funds for the Global Recovery Initiative Foundation,” says Sixx. “The opioid epidemic did not go away when the pandemic came along. Just the opposite…those in early recovery became even more at risk than before so it’s more important now than ever to raise awareness and support them. I really believe that united we can make a difference and save lives.”
Maybe It’s Time is out now, available to stream or purchase HERE.
