Original Music – Rain Or Shine (Charity Single)

 

Rain or Shine (Charity Single)

Please help us to raise money for people across the globe who are affected by Covid-19.  Whilst lockdown restrictions are gradually easing in the UK, there are communities across the globe who are still at severe risk.  For £1.50 you can buy an uplifting song AND raise money at the same time! And of course, you can donate more than the cost of the song if you’d like to. In order to keep production costs down we have decided not to produce a physical CD at this time.  The song can be streamed via the Bandcamp app or you can download it as a music file to play at your leisure.  The song is available at : www.hybridspirits.bandcamp.com

“Rain or Shine” echoes feelings of solidarity and togetherness during the Covid-19 pandemic.  It is an uplifting  song of hope and sunshine combining powerful electronic music with driving guitars. It includes messages of positivity such as “Come rain or come shine with all the love that we feel inside”, “Gather round your people and face towards the sun” and “We’re so much stronger together”, along with pauses for reflection between verses and choruses.

It has been written during the Covid-19 pandemic to raise money for the International Committee of The Red Cross. We will donate 90% of income received* from sales on Bandcamp to The International Committee of the Red Cross following their “Covid-19 Emergency Appeal” to raise 800 million Swiss Francs to assist the world’s most vulnerable.  Their appeal can be seen at : https://www.icrc.org/en/donate/covid-19-emergency-appeal

Please do share the link to this song with your friends, families and communities. We need to raise as much money as possible to help those in need across the globe.  Many thanks for spreading the word and for your support!

Lyrics

Rain or Shine

©Hybrid Spirits 2020

 

Verse 1

Hey look out of your window and see the summer rain

Doesn’t it make you wonder when we’ll see the sun again?

 

Verse 2

Hey look at all those people living day to day

Chasing all those rainbows, I think I’ll do the same

 

Chorus

But come rain or come shine with all the love that we feel inside

We can face all the thunder dragging us under and we know we’re gonna be alright

 

Bridge

So gather all your people and face towards the sun

We’re so much stronger together and will be for years to come

 

Verse 3 

Hey the seasons around us are changing but inside we feel the same

The fight we have inside us grows stronger every day

 

Repeat bridge

Repeat chorus
