Ed Sheeran and Ukrainian pop-rock band Antytila have presented a joint song - a remake of the track 2Step from the latest album of the British artist, in which Taras Topolia sings in Ukrainian. Band’s JPvid channel released an official music video. Impressive wartime footage and touching personal story of Taras Topolia - all embodied in the video.
"Ed's suggestion to work together is a manifestation of the genuine support for Ukraine, shown by the people of Great Britain during this war. Millions of people, not only in words but in concrete deeds, show how it really is to stand up for their principles, democracy and freedom and to give a hand to those, who really need it. It seems like just a joint song, but how symbolic it is in fact.
In our current circumstances it was really challenging to write and record Ukrainian lyrics to Ed’s song. In addition to this, Bobina Records studio, where we used to record our own songs, was under russian scumd’ occupation. But thanks to Maksym Syvolap, our friend, irreplaceable co-author and arranger of many songs, we succeeded to do our part", - tells Taras Topolia.
All funds raised from JPvid video monetization and royalties will be forwarded to Music Saves UA, a project by the Ukrainian Association of the Music Events musicsavesua.com/uk
Antytila point out that the video is dedicated to Dmytro Manifest, a Ukrainian film director, whose life was cut short.
The director and producer of the video is Dmytro Shmurak - a close friend of Dmytro Manifest. He and his team professionally and perfectly implemented everything that was on his mind, knowing that Antytila band will not be able to fully join the filming.
"There are people that are ready to go through the fire and flames with you. Specifically because of our friendship with Manifest, I finally understood that doing anything at half strength makes absolutely no sense. Life is very uncalm now, so when Antytila asked me to support and, in fact, to produce and film the video by myself, I instantly agreed, though understood that it will be an extremely challenging task. Me and the team did our best to make it happen. If Dima was alive, he would definitely be with us on the set. And all I want to say to the boys - get back home alive!" - shares Dmytro Shmurak.
