John Legend unveiling new song at DNC

Barack Obama's Web site will sell 'If You're Out There'

NEW YORK -- John Legend will debut a new song, "If You're Out There," on Monday night as part of the opening of the Democratic National Convention at Denver's Pepsi Center.

The song is an "anthemic call-to-action and evocation of human potential," according to a statement. 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" was produced by Trevor Horn and Devo Springsteen, and features the Agape Choir. It will be available via the Web site after the performance but can be purchased now via iTunes.

The song also will be included on Legend's next album, "Evolver," due Oct. 28 via Columbia.
