The song will also be featured on the soundtrack to the upcoming Better Noise Films movie ‘Sno Babies‘, which according to a press release, ‘depicts the grim realities of teen-age addiction and its effects on a middle-class suburban town.’ That film will see a digital release on September 29th.

Sixx commented of this undertaking:

“I am proud to bring together these artists to help raise funds for the Global Recovery Initiative Foundation. The opioid epidemic did not go away when the pandemic came along. Just the opposite…those in early recovery became even more at risk than before so it’s more important now than ever to raise awareness and support them. I really believe that united we can make a difference and save lives.”

Several of the guests involved also commented on their involvement as follows:

Def Leppard‘s Joe Elliot:

“So, Nikki rang me to see if I’d lend a vocal to ‘Maybe It’s Time.’ After hearing the track for the first time in a while, I was reminded how good it is so I was in! It felt right, all around, giving back to the much-needed Global Recovery Initiative.”

Bad WolvesTommy Vext:

“Alcoholism and drug addiction are family diseases. They’re the only diseases that everyone is mad at and hurt if you have it. People don’t get upset at you if you get cancer. It’s because with addiction, it affects everyone whose life touches the sufferer.”

Slipknot‘s Corey Taylor:

“It’s a real issue… It’s affecting young people more and more every year, so it’s very, very important for all of us to pitch in and do our part, especially some of us who have lived through it…those of us who have survived… it’s the least I can do.”
