Beverly Glenn-Copeland has shared a new single, ‘Stand Anthem’, lifted from his upcoming album The Ones Ahead. A collaboration between Glenn-Copeland and his longtime partner Elizabeth, it follows previous offerings ‘Harbour (Song for Elizabeth)’ and ‘Africa Calling’. Check it out below.
“‘Stand Anthem’ was originally a song written to represent the essence of a one-woman show Elizabeth wrote, entitled, ‘Bearing Witness’,” Glenn-Copeland explained in a statement. “She wrote, produced, directed and performed in the show which was workshopped with the support of that inimitable (and now late) Canadian dramaturg, Sharron Pollock with the support of Mount Allison University. In the show, I and an Indigenous elder represented ‘the voice of the elders’. This was Elizabeth’s visionary, earth-activist show, and utterly brilliant.”
The Ones Ahead is slated to arrive July 28 via Transgressive.
