Rock legends Van Morrison and Eric Clapton have now joined forces to pen a new, epic anti-lockdown ballad.
The song, entitled “Stand and Deliver” is set to be released on December 4th and will surely drive liberals to unhinged rage as its anti-totalitarian message is a direct strike against their entire worldview.
As The Daily Wire reports:
Amid a worldwide lockdown that has hollowed out concert venues ranging from local pubs to football stadiums, suspending live events and upending the touring industry, many artists are beginning to push back on government-imposed restrictions.
Most recently, singer-songwriter Van Morrison – who spawned a fruitful solo career with his 1967 pop hit “Brown Eyed Girl” and went on to create such classic records as “Astral Weeks” and “Moondance” – announced via Twitter on Friday a new single, titled “Stand and Deliver,” in collaboration with three-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Eric Clapton.

“Stand and Deliver,” set to be released on December 4, follows in the footsteps of three other recent singles recorded by Morrison: “Born to Be Free,” “As I Walked Out,” and “No More Lockdown.”“Born to Be Free,” a soulful, Motown-inspired groove, is practically a paean to libertarianism. This is a song Ayn Rand could gleefully sing in the shower while dreaming up dystopian novels. In a general rebuke to overbearing government, Morrison sings, “Don’t need the government cramping my style; give them an inch, they take a mile.” Deftly shimmying into an analogy comparing COVID era curfews and shutdowns to Soviet rule, he continues with the chorus, “The new normal is not normal; it’s no kind of normal at all; everyone seems to have amnesia; just trying to remember the Berlin Wall.”
