Watch Garth Brooks’ Never-Before-Released “We Shall Be Free” Video Featuring Sean Connery, Forest Whitaker, Whoopi Goldberg & More

During Garth Brooks’ weekly Inside Studio G Facebook Live series last night (March 6), the G-man broadcast the never-before-seen rebooted video for “We Shall Be Free.”

Here’s a little backstory on the song, original video and the rebooted video.

“We Shall Be Free,” which was written by Garth and Stephanie Davis, appeared on Garth’s 1992 album, The Chase. Garth was inspired to write the song—which promotes racial, ethnic and sexual orientation tolerance—after witnessing the 1992 L.A. riots from his bus. The song’s original music video was released in 1992, featuring powerful news footage with celebrity cameos, including Whoopi Goldberg, Jay Leno, John Elway, Joan Rivers and more. The video won the 1993 ACM Video of the Year.

In 2005, Garth decided to reboot the video with recent news clips, including footage from 9/11, and more celebrities, including Forest Whitaker, Sean Connery, Al Gore and more. Due to publishing rights, the video was never released.

During Inside Studio G, Garth talked briefly about the song and the rebooted video before broadcasting the never-before-seen footage.

The rebooted “We Shall Be Free” video starts at the 2:17 mark.
