What with the current state of the world, with all its fear, hatred and division, I envisioned that there would be a rise in angry protest music. While that has been the case in some circles, others have chosen to follow a different path. Despite its name, ‘Mad at the World’ is not an angry song, instead it follows the wise words of Marvin Gaye: “only love can conquer hate”. To that end, Canadian artist and actor Will Bowes shares a moving and heartfelt message with this stunningly soulful piano ballad. Inspired by the recent attacks in Toronto, ‘Mad at the World’ is a song about being the change you want to see in the world. Promoting love and togetherness, remaining optimistic in the face of unrest and uncertainty and standing up for what really matters in life.
