VOTE – Graham Nash's appeal for everyone to get out and vote, premiered on Rolling Stone: "To emphasize the message in the song, Nash tapped regular collaborator Andrew Thomas to make a video for “Vote” (Thomas previously helmed clips for Nash and David Crosby’s “Don’t Dig Here,” as well as Nash solo songs “Immigration Man,”
“Clear Blue Skies,” and “Almost Gone”). The visual collage is frank and unsparing about the current climate and the importance of voting."
