Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom has released a "sneak peek" of his latest song Mr President.
Dotcom was arrested after police swooped on his home in January and stands accused of breaching copyright laws costing owners more than US$500 million. He is on bail at his luxury Coatesville mansion ahead of extradition hearings scheduled for March.
A 30 second sound clip of the internet tycoon's song, which calls for US President Barack Obama to resurrect Megaupload, was released today.
Dotcom tweeted to his 92,617 followers: "BREAKING NEWS: 30 sec of the Mr President song (iPhone recording). The Anthem of Internet Freedom - Coming soon."
It is Dotcom's first song on an album he has recorded with Black
Eyed Peas producer and songwriter Printz Board.
The track has the chorus: "Let's get together, let's all unite or they will do whatever they like."
The song also calls for "the people who chose to turn innovation into crime" to be exposed, and says people should not "vote for those who want to take us back in time".
One fan tweeted that the song sounds "great".
"I loved the song about Banksy. I love it when someone like Dotcom has the shear guts to let us know what really goes on! I'm behind him a hundred percent!"
And another fan tweeted that it was "definitely a worthy successor to the Megaupload song".
Dotcom said yesterday morning that the full music video for Mr President would be released soon.
"Asking @BarackObama to resurrect Megaupload. Yes he can. YOU have the power to convince him!," Dotcom tweeted.
But most did not share his optimism.
Permafried tweeted: "@Kim Dotcom @BarackObama no we don't, obama is run my corporations as well, people don't matter, sad but true."
And Ryan Glynn tweeted "he won't do it" saying the US is not controlled by people's interest.
Dotcom released a track in May about his controversial donation towards John Banks' electoral campaign in 2010. Dotcom also made this track with Printz Board.
Authorities say Dotcom and his three co-accused - Mathias Ortmann, Fin Batato and Bram Van der Kolk - used Megaupload and its affiliated sites to knowingly make money from pirated movies and games.
