I guess only Van Morrison is writin’ ‘Protest’ Music these days!
The track supports Morrison’s ongoing Save Live Music campaign.
“Do you wanna be a free man / Or do you wanna be a slave? / Do you wanna wear these chains / Until you’re lying in the grave?”
“Stand and deliver / You let them put the fear on you.”
“Stand And Deliver” follows a few other anti-lockdown protest tracks from Morrison, including “Born to Be Free” and the more directly titled “No More Lockdown.”
Proceeds from “Stand and Deliver” will benefit Morrison’s Lockdown Financial Hardship Fund, which aims to assist musicians who are struggling amid the coronavirus pandemic, Variety reports.
