In December of 2016 the band released a limited edition 7”, their version of the song “What the World Needs Now Is Love” (produced by Lawrence Katz and the BossToneS and mixed by Paul Kolderie) featuring an unreleased original BossToneS song “I Won’t Go Out Like That” as the B-side. “What the World Needs Now Is Love” was originally released in 1965 with lyrics by Hal David and music composed by Burt Bacharach. “It’s a message and/or a reminder that we would like to share with the world for the holidays during these seemingly difficult and trying times. The song doesn’t take a side but it definitely takes a stance.” – says frontman Dicky Barrett
“What the world needs now is love, sweet love
No not just for some but for everyone”
