Sharon Van Etten sort Not Myself en hommage à Orlando

Sharon Van Etten vient de dévoiler Not Myself, un morceau en hommage aux victimes de la fusillade au club Pulse d’Orlando, qui avait fait 49 morts en juin dernier. On ne vous fera pas l’affront de traduire les paroles, elles sont ICI et elles sont belles. Le titre, un piano/voix, est accompagné d’une lettre :

I was home with my parents in New Jersey when I heard of the shooting at the nightclub in Florida. Hate, violence, and intolerance has always upset me, but I haven’t been this overwhelmed with sadness and disbelief in a long time. The victims were only trying to be themselves and be comfortable and safe in their surroundings. That safety was violated out of fear and with a gun.

I originally wanted to raise money for the victims and their families, but I knew the issue was bigger than this. I wrote “Not Myself” for the victims of this horrific event, but I chose to support the research and awareness work of Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund: a movement of Americans working together to end gun violence and build safer communities.
In the memory of those trying to be safe and be themselves, I hope we can all come together to help prevent another massacre like this and end gun violence.

Le morceau peut être acheté sur Bandcamp pour un montant au choix et l’argent récolté sera reversé à l’association Everytown for Gun Safety, luttant pour le contrôle des armes à feu et contre la violence.
