Joe Grushecky y Bruce Springsteen publican nueva canción

Joe Grushecky y Bruce Springsteen han estado trabajando juntos de nuevo. Ambos artistas han estado colaborando en distintos proyectos desde 1994, cuando escribieron y grabaron las canciones del álbum de Joe American Babylon.

Esta vez han unido fuerzas para una nueva canción titulada «That’s What Makes Us Great», a modo de protesta contra Donald Trump. Grushecky escribió la canción y la mandó a Springsteen, quien grabó sus partes vocales y la devolvió a Joe.

El resultado de esta nueva colaboración musical sale hoy a la luz. La canción se estrenará en el canal E Street Radio (en la emisora por satélite SiriusXM) y estará disponible en descarga en la web de Joegrushecky.com.

Esta es la letra de la canción:

They come from everywhere
All longing to be free
They come to join us here
From sea to shining sea

And they all have a dream
As people always will
To be safe and warm
In that shining city on the hill

Some wanna slam the door
Instead of opening the gate
Ah, let’s turn this thing around
Before it gets too late

It’s up to me and you
Love can conquer hate
I know this to be true
That’s what makes us great

Don’t tell me a lie
And sell it as a fact
I’ve been down that road before
And I ain’t goin’ back

And don’t you brag to me
That you never read a book
I never put my faith
In a con man and his crooks

I won’t follow down that path
And tempt the hands of fate
Ah, let’s turn this thing around
Before it gets too late

It’s up to me and you
Love can conquer hate
I know this to be true
That’s what makes us great

In the quiet of the night
I lie here wide awake
And I ask myself
Is there a difference I can make?
Is there a difference I can make?

It’s up to me and you
Love can conquer hate
It’s up to me and you
Love can conquer hate
It’s up to me and you
Love can conquer hate
I know this to be true
And that’s what makes us great
That’s what makes us great
That’s what makes us great
That’s what makes us great

Joe Grushecky & Bruce Springsteen release new song

Once again Joe Grushecky and Bruce Springsteen have worked together. They’ve been doing so since 1994, when they recorded together the album American Babylon.

This time they’ve joined forces on a new song called «That’s What Makes Us Great», a new protest song directed to Donald Trump. Grushecky wrote the song and sent it to Springsteen, who recorded his vocal parts and sent it back.

The result of their new collaboration is released today. It will premiere on E Street Radio at 10 a.m. and will be available for download at Joegrushecky.com.

These are the lyrics to the new song:

They come from everywhere
All longing to be free
They come to join us here
From sea to shining sea

And they all have a dream
As people always will
To be safe and warm
In that shining city on the hill

Some wanna slam the door
Instead of opening the gate
Ah, let’s turn this thing around
Before it gets too late

It’s up to me and you
Love can conquer hate
I know this to be true
That’s what makes us great

Don’t tell me a lie
And sell it as a fact
I’ve been down that road before
And I ain’t goin’ back

And don’t you brag to me
That you never read a book
I never put my faith
In a con man and his crooks

I won’t follow down that path
And tempt the hands of fate
Ah, let’s turn this thing around
Before it gets too late

It’s up to me and you
Love can conquer hate
I know this to be true
That’s what makes us great

In the quiet of the night
I lie here wide awake
And I ask myself
Is there a difference I can make?
Is there a difference I can make?

It’s up to me and you
Love can conquer hate
It’s up to me and you
Love can conquer hate
It’s up to me and you
Love can conquer hate
I know this to be true
And that’s what makes us great
That’s what makes us great
That’s what makes us great
That’s what makes us great
