We, through our label Oniric Records, announce that legendary reggae band The Wailers have contributed an exclusive new track titled “A Step for Mankind” to our “Solutions for Dreamers: Season 3” compilation album. This compilation, to be released July 1, 2010, is the third in our Solutions for Dreamers series and all of the proceeds generated will go directly to the United Nations’ World Food Programme(WFP).
The World Food Programme is the world’s largest organization fighting hunger on a global scale. WFP is committed to getting food to where it is needed, saving the lives of victims of war, civil conflict, and natural disasters. Each year, on average, WFP feeds more than 90 million people in more than 70 countries. We at Oniracom and Oniric Records have been inspired by the work the WFP does and are proud to partner with them on Solutions for Dreamers: Season 3.
The exclusive studio track The Wailers have recorded for the compilation is called “A Step for Mankind” and was written by the remarkable singer/songwriter Duane Stephenson. Renowned for his portrayal of love, culture and spirituality in his songwriting, Stephenson wrote this track as a call for world unity and peace, a common theme in many of the Wailers’ best known international hits. As the lead track on Solutions for Dreamers: Season 3, “A Step for Mankind” truly embodies what our compilation series is all about. The driving force behind our label and the Solutions for Dreamers series is a passion for the well-being of our world and those within it, and “A Step for Mankind” walks hand in hand with that mission.
Below you can get a sneak preview listen of “A Step for Mankind” before it is released with Solutions for Dreamers: Season 3 in a music video The Wailers and Stephenson created for the World Food Programme’s Walk the World, an annual fundraising event for the WFP taking place on June 6th. The song, in addition to being featured on our compilation, is the anthem for Walk the World. Check out more information about this incredible event here and check out the “A Step for Mankind” video below.

The Wailers try to do their part to create a better tomorrow for the people of the world and we encourage you to do the same.
