According him we can overcome long night if we can believe that there will be tomorrow and it will come. Earlier this year when I featured with Sonita in the United Nation Headquarters in New York, I let her sing songs that only she sing to express her hardship, sufferings and bitter experiences that only she through singing could overcoming. I have made English version of the song, yet I strongly would like her to rap in her mother tongue, Farsi.” Additionally, about “In Crowd feat. Seann Bowe”, which is released at the same time, MIYAVI mentioned “I am very happy to release this song because I have played this song in my music concert every time since South by South West (SXSW) last year.”
