Eric Clapton and Van Morrison’s Musical Collaboration Against Coronavirus Crackdowns


undefined

In October, I wrote about marquee musicians Van Morrison and Eric Clapton speaking out against coronavirus crackdown measures that greatly restrict live music performances, as well as Morrison’s preforming in concerts and recording protest songs to challenge the crackdowns, with profits from the protest songs being used to help musicians who have financially suffered due to the crackdowns.

Now Clapton and Morrison have moved beyond joint condemnation of some of draconian measures taken in the name of countering coronavirus. They have joined in a musical collaboration to record a song that challenges these measures. Sales of the song will raise money for Morrison’s charity helping financially harmed musicians.

The song “Stand and Deliver,” written by Morrison and performed by Clapton, will be available on December 4.
