"Release" is a song by Canadian rock band The Tea Party. It was released as a charity single in Canada and a promotional single in the USA.[1] The music video was shot in Paris and Toronto.

"Release" is a standard three-piece rock composition and with keyboard accompaniment, written after Jeff Martin watched a BBC report about the state of women's rights worldwide, the song intended as an apology to women. After the release of Transmission the band continued the sentiment by releasing a charity single to assist the White Ribbon Campaign.[2]
