RELEASE NOTES

Love On The Rocks returns with its first release for 2019 and its first-ever reissue, "Cry Freedom" by Romie Singh.

It's hard to love with so much fighting, hard to love with so much war / All they want is gold and silver, all they want is time to love / And freedom to dance.

Thirty years after its initial release, the song feels timeless and its message feels more relevant than ever. 1989 was a year of drastic global shift that brought globe-altering change to Johannesburg, Berlin, Moscow, and Beijing.

2019 marks another stage global shift with the tightening of borders, erosion of civil liberties and human rights, and endless beating of the political drums calling for division and war. Singh's lyrics express a universal call that echoes around the world, with no regard for borders, race, colour or creed. The cry for freedom. To live. To love. And that most fundamental expression of joy and unity known in every culture and corner of the world…to dance!

"Cry Freedom" is the 19th release on Love On The Rocks. It is issued as a limited edition of 300 hand-stamped and numbered 12" vinyl containing the 10-minute, 22-second 'long' version of the track as originally released on the 1989 maxi single. The other side contains an etching based on the original album cover artwork.
