Workin’ Together (1970)

Ike & Tina Turner - Workin' Together - Single

Workin' Together is the title track and the second single from Ike & Tina’s most successful album Workin’ Together. Both songs were written by Ike Turner, but the title song was credited to Eki Renrut, which is the backward spelling of Ike’s name. Ike & Tina promoted it live at the tv show „American Bandstand“ on January 16, 1971. The Mexican extended play single includes four tracks from the Workin’ Together album. 

The songtext is very unusual for Ike & Tina Turner, because it’s very politically and describes the problems in the world. Unfortunately, the message of the song is still very present - more than ever!

A very rare video clip is available for this song, which shows some live performances and a very private side of the duo, plus many scenes about violence, racism and war.

Working together we can make a change
Working together we can help better things
So let us put our hate aside and let us let love be our guide
