NEW YORK (Billboard) - Soul singer John Legend will debut a new song, “If You’re Out There,” at Monday night’s (August 25) opening session of the Democratic National Convention at Denver’s Pepsi Center.

According to a statement, the song is an “anthemic call-to-action and evocation of human potential.” It includes such lines as “We’re the generation / We can’t afford to wait / The future started yesterday and we’re already late.”

“If You’re Out There” features the Agape Choir. It will be available via the Web site my.barackobama.com/johnlegend after the performance but can be purchased beforehand via iTunes.

The song will also be found on Legend’s next album, “Evolver,” due October 28 via Columbia.
