SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — An American woman freed from an Iranian prison has released a song she hopes will build support for the release of her friends who remain jailed in that country.

Sarah Shourd’s song, “Piece of Time,” and an accompanying music video were posted Wednesday on the online site YouTube.

Shourd says the song was one of many she wrote while in solitary confinement and sang to her fiance, Shane Bauer, and friend, Josh Fattal, when they saw each other at Iran’s Evin Prison.

The song was released to coincide with the start of the 17th month of imprisonment for Bauer and Fattal, who are graduates of the University of California, Berkeley.

Shourd was allowed to leave Iran more than 13 months after the three Americans were arrested while hiking near the border of Iran and Iraq.
