FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – “New England Revolution Anthem,” written and performed by Abington, Mass. resident Josephin Shlomit Madden, has been selected as the New England Revolution’s official 2012 victory song.

“My heart is exploding that my ‘New England Revolution Anthem’ is the new official victory song of the New England Revolution,” said Madden. “I know this anthem can – and will – bring everyone together and give the Revs players a boost. I hope the fans get to hear this song played after a lot of Revolution victories at Gillette Stadium this season!”
