Eric Clapton and Van Morrison have announced a new single, "Stand and Deliver." The blues song was written by Morrison and performed by EC. It will be available for download and streaming from iTunes, Amazon Music, Deezer and other outlets from 4 December.
It is being released in support of Morrison's Lockdown Financial Hardship Fund, which assists musicians facing financial difficulties as a result of the global pandemic and related lockdown measures, and is part of the singer's Save Live Music Campaign.
The two music legends performed together last on 3 March at the Music for Marsden charity concert at London's O2 Arena, shortly before the live music industry was shuttered by the pandemic.
