We have been a huge fan of indie-singer Blaudzun since his fab track ‚Promises Of No Man’s Land‘ (see a massive live version at the Paradiso in Amsterdam here). And he is back with the MASSIVE new song ‚Real Hero‘.
The singer from the Netherlands about the story of the song:
“I wrote the song with the severely ill son of one of my best friends in mind. It has become a tribute to him, to his sister and his parents. At the time I wrote ‘Real Hero’ we were still hopeful that he would overcome the disease, but sadly things turned out differently. Last November, I sang a stripped-down version of the song at his funeral.”
But the track itself is very driving and fast-forward, positive:
“As the world seemed to be inundated with hatred and disease last year, I still found there was a lot of beauty to discover in the chaos. People who know how to find each other when opposites seem unbridgeable, people who discover love in times of pandemic. People who do not resign themselves to loss and loneliness and who stand for themselves and their fellow man. Those are my true heroes.”
WHOAH – What a track! It is so good to bring up positive emotions in these times – great stuff, Blaudzun!
