The current presidential campaign has inspired a new song and video from Far East Movement .  The group introduced the song, called "For All," Tuesday via Twitter ; the accompanying video will air Thursday on VEVO and features Snoop Dogg , Russell Simmons , George Lopez and Kal Penn .  The track is now available on iTunes, and will also be available on an upcoming re-release of Far East Movement's most recent disc, Dirty Bass .

According to the group, the song was inspired by the Obama campaign, and in a statement, Far East's  Kev Nish explains, "We wanted to create an anthem around the inspirational ideals that people around the world are entitled to, no matter your race, religion, sexual preference, political or social views."

Far East Movement adds that their fans were another source of inspiration.  Says Kev Nish, "We [used] the crowd at our concerts as the example.  When you're at a show experiencing live music, no matter who you're next to, you're experiencing that magic together."

In other Far East news, the group is working on a video for a song called "Change Your Life," featuring Flo Rida .
