Eric Eckhart marks his 50th Birthday by releasing his new single/video, “I Stand With Love”, a stirring rallying call to no longer staying silent in our ever more polarised world.

Playing all the instruments, recording, mixing and producing, Eric Eckhart has come into his own as an artist willing to put himself on the line and use his music to address challenging issues.

“I Stand With Love” blends two lyrical and musical vantage points with the soulful first half exploring the disconnect and isolation of inequality while the second half rockets off announcing a clear call to activism and change with love as the guiding principle.

“I Stand With Love” is the first single from Eric Eckhart’s new album due for release in May 2018.

Track Name: I Stand With Love
Hard times come
See the lonely girls they die to catch the sun
Hard times stay
All the poor boys hide their tears and masquerade
Well tonight
I am far from my hometown
Where am I?
Someone tell me I’m alright

I’m tired of smiling
Even babies are allowed to cry at night
Leave me be
Go away with all your hateful ways you’re treating me
‘Cause I know nobody can tell me, “everything will be alright”

Well I stood up
Loosed my tongue
I can’t sit back
The war’s begun
I don’t have much
But I have my voice
I’ve had enough
I’ve made my choice
I stand with you and not with them
Which side you on?
Which side my friend?

I stand with love
I stand with love

Will you lift your hand to those in need?
Will you give shelter to those who flee?
With open arms
No walls around
Love is resistance
Love won’t be bound

I stand with love
I stand with love
