GRAMMY-Nominee Seth Glier Premieres 'For What It's Worth' Video

GRAMMY-nominated singer/songwriter Seth Glier has released his own take on Buffalo Springfield's anti-war anthem "For What It's Worth." Originally written by the legendary Stephen Stills, Seth believes it was imperative for this song to come back to life given the current political climate. He states "I decided to record the Buffalo Springfield song 'For What It's Worth' because I believe we are in a time of connecting the dots again. In our culture and in ourselves. The age of information has been turned into the age of entertainment and I believe people in both red states and blue are beginning to say 'there is something happening here'."

The track will be included in Seth's upcoming studio album, Birds, on August 25th. In early 2016, Seth gave a TEDx Talk in which he discussed how gratitude is not a state of peace or arrival, but a bitter battle for balance and reason. This was inspired after losing his brother Jamie to severe autism and led to the start of the writing of Birds, which was expressed in the previous release, "I'm Still Looking." In keeping with matters close to his heart, Seth also tackles a few social issues on Birds. "Water on Fire" tears into fracking while "Justice For All" challenges the death penalty. "For What It's Worth" rounds out the collection. Fans can pre-order the album on iTunes and stream "For What It's Worth" and "I'm Still Looking" on Spotify.

Seth and MPress Records have also collaborated with Pledge Music to officially launch his pre-order campaign for Birds. Fans will be able to access uniquely branded experiences and Pledge-only exclusives with each pre-order of the album. More information here.

Additionally, the artist will be hitting the road for a headlining U.S. tour kicking off at the Kerrville Fall Festival in Kerrville, TX. Seth will be making stops in these major cities: New York, Philadelphia, Boston and Chicago. Full tour routing can be found below and via his website.
