Eugene Hudz and Sergey Ryabtsev (Gogol Bordello), Sean Lennon, Stewart Copeland (The Police), and Billy Strings also took part in the recording. Performers in English and Ukrainian say that even one person can significantly influence events, and “only those who have steel eggs can organize a revolution of dignity.”
As soon as the Russian aggression broke out, Les and I contacted him to deal with the catastrophe as soon as possible. We have started to create positive music that calls for unity and pays tribute to the real defenders of Ukraine, such as President Zelensky, who has shown unprecedented resilience and heroismEugene Hudz in an interview to Rolling Stone.
All proceeds from the song will go to the American non-profit organization Nova Ukraine, which helps raise awareness about Ukraine in the United States and worldwide and provide humanitarian assistance to Ukrainians.
On April 4, Volodymyr Zelensky addressed the Grammy 2022, in which he called on musicians to support Ukraine “in every possible way.” Part of the ceremony was dedicated to the Russian-Ukrainian war.
