Neil DiamondNeil Diamond is working on an uplifting new anthem for America to help those struggling with the fall-out from the recession.

The crooner is responsible for some of America's most inspiring songs, like "Sweet Caroline" and "America," which have been adopted as unofficial anthems - and he feels it's time to come up with another.

He tells Parade magazine, "We’re so inundated with bad news, and I would like to write a song that’s an optimistic, uplifting view of what America can and will be. That would be a challenge. I don’t even know if I could do it."
