Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx has brought together some of the biggest names in rock to record a new version of his band Sixx:A.M.‘s “Maybe It’s Time” in an effort to fight substance use disorders and help people in recovery.
The new version of “Maybe It’s Time,” which was released on Friday, August 21, includes contributions from Guns N’ Roses‘ Slash, Def Leppard‘s Joe Elliott, Slipknot‘s Corey Taylor, Five Finger Death Punch‘s Ivan Moody, and more.
“I am proud to bring together these artists to help raise funds for the Global Recovery Initiative Foundation,” Sixx said in a statement.
“The opioid epidemic did not go away when the pandemic came along.”
“Just the opposite… those in early recovery became even more at risk than before so it’s more important now than ever to raise awareness and support them,” he added. “I really believe that united we can make a difference and save lives.”
All artist royalties from the single, which will also appear in the upcoming move Sno Babies, are being donated to the Global Recovery Initiatives Foundation.
The release of the song was timed to coincide with International Overdose Awareness Day on August 31 and National Recovery Month in September.
