Mortad will be releasing a follow up video explaining about the song, the making of the video, Neda’s life and the Iranian freedom movements on June 20th.

Mortad’s front woman Somi Arian said, “Lyrically, The Voice is the most important song in The Myth of Purity album also the only song that contains some Persian lyrics. I felt that I had something to say, I want to be The Voice of the voiceless and to honour the memory of thousands of men and women who lost their lives in a battle to revive the basic human rights for others”.
