Inspired by the messages of empowerment and friendship featured in the special, singer and guitarist Alex Luciano, and drummer Noah Bowman of Diet Cig, jumped at the chance to record the single for American Girl – Summer Camp, Friends for Life.
“We were so excited to write this song the moment we read about the episode! We literally wrote and recorded it in two days and we wanted to create a song that embodied the spirit of togetherness and empowerment that the characters exude. The lyrics were inspired by how the girls work together and use their individual strengths; it’s great to see young girls represented as smart, nuanced, curious characters and our song tries to capture that energy” explained Luciano.
This is the third American Girl special to feature original songs exclusively on Amazon Music. Last November, Best Coast released “Christmas and Everyday” for the Amazon Original holiday special, An American Girl Story—Maryellen 1955: Extraordinary Christmas, and in March, indie rockers Foxygen released “Be Yourself,” for An American Girl Story – Ivy & Julie 1976: A Happy Balance. Both tracks are currently available on both Amazon Music Unlimited and Prime Music.

In An American Girl Story: Summer Camp, Friends for Life, friends Z (Zoe Manarel, The Nightingale) and Paz (Alison Fernandez, Logan) arrive at S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) camp excited for tech heaven. When the administrator surprises everyone by restricting their devices, they think their summer’s doomed. Things take a mysterious turn when they meet Jordan (Monique Green, Marriage of Lies), an enchanting “counselor” who sends them on an adventure, opening them up to a world of possibilities – like befriending Drew (Lauren Donzis, Liv and Maddie). The special, directed by Alison McDonald (An American Girl Story – Melody 1963: Love Has to Win), also stars Camryn Manheim (Extant).
