With the start of a new work week , you, Shockya readers, may need a little push to kick past those Monday blues. No need to worry because musician and producer, Dave Stewart, singer-songwriter and actress, Joss Stone and war photographer, Paul Conroy, have a way to motivate you in the office.
Alongside Amnesty International, the trio released the music video for the song, “Take Good Care”, which calls on the world leaders gathering at the United Nations to deliver an effective Arms Trade Treaty. Details of this historic Treaty are currently being discussed at the United Nations this month, lasting until July 27th. Delegates from all UN member states are attending the month-long talks where they will agree upon a Treaty by which they want the trade in weapons to be governed.

“Take Good Care” is the result of Conroy’s response to the devastating impact of arms violence and conflict on the lives of those in Misrata, Libya. Conroy, who wrote the track with Stone, enhanced the already poignant song with a Stewart produced music video, which includes his frontline war footage along with Stone’s and Stewart’s studio performance of “Take Good Care”.

Stone’s soulful vocals placed beside simplistically effective lyrics and invoking imagery clearly conveys the powerful message of the Arms Trade Treaty.
Now, quit complaining about your Monday pain and remember there is way more out there in the world than your cubicle struggles.
