“After 50 years together, this song is about the time spent looking back rather than looking forward…so much to be grateful for,” said Gerry Beckley in a statement. The song will be included in America’s upcoming 2021 studio album.

More on the Half Century box set, via a news release:

It contains CDs of rare archival studio recordings consisting of alternate mixes, demos and rehearsals, including several previously unreleased tracks ranging from 1970 – 2000. Along with the re-mastered Bremen 1973 in-studio performance and two CD’s of radio interviews providing an audio overview of the band’s career, along with a DVD of Super 8 “Home Movies” (1972-1975) to give fans a behind the scenes look at the early years of the legendary and enduring band.
