Barbra Streisand releases her first song in six years due to the “rise of anti-Semitism”


American singer Barbra Streisand released this Thursday his first new song in six years, ‘Love will survive’, motivated by his fight against anti-Semitism, and which will provide the soundtrack to a series set in the Holocaust‘ The tattoist of Auschwitz’.

“Due to the rise of anti-Semitism around the world today, I wanted to sing ‘Love will survive’ in the context of this series, as a way to remember the six million souls we lost less than 80 years ago,” the singer said in a note.

The song, a nostalgic ballad, features the legendary Hans Zimmer as a composer, accompanied by Kara Talve and Walter Afanasieff, and the lyrics are by Charlie Midnight, indicated the Grammy-winning artist.

Streisand, who turned 82 this Wednesday and is one of the most famous Jewish singers, usually uses her social networks to comment on current US politics, from the financing of Ukraine in his fight against Russia until the trial of the former president Donald Trump.

However, he seems to have preferred to use art to address a thorny issue for many celebrities: that of the conflict between Israel and Hamas which has led to a war in Gaza since October and recently generated tense pro-Palestinian protests at US universities.

‘The tattooist of Auschwitz’, based on the novel of the same name by Heather Morris premieres on Peacock this May 2 in the US and tells the story of Lali Sokolov, a prisoner in the Auschwitz concentration camp who is commissioned by the Nazis to tattoo identification numbers on the other Jewish inmates.

Streisand released her last original songs in 2018, with the album ‘Walls’, and since then she has presented compilation projects, reissues and live shows.
