Hot Press Track of the Day: Eric Eckhart's 'I Stand With Love'

Eric Eckhart will mark his 50th Birthday on March 14th by releasing the video for his new single, 'I Stand With Love', a stirring rallying call to no longer staying silent in our ever more polarised world.

'I Stand With Love' blends two unique lyrical and musical vantage points with the soulful first half exploring the emotional disconnect and isolation of inequality while the guitar-driven second half rockets off announcing a clear call to activism with love as the guiding principle to tackling the inextricably linked issues of economic inequality and identity, gender and sexual rights.

Playing all the instruments, recording, mixing and producing, Eric Eckhart has come into his own as an artist willing to put himself on the line and use his music to address challenging issues.

The video for “I Stand With Love” puts the focus on his home and adopted countries of America, Ireland and Germany.

“I Stand With Love” is the first single from Eric Eckhart’s new album due for release in May 2018.
