Back in the ’60s, they were called protest songs, now they are given a more conscious title of socially and politically conscious songs.

Yet with the change of the tag, there seems to have been another change – somehow such songs and music have been put on the back burner, as if the audience has to search for them by itself.

Currently, one of the  serious themes that occupy a number of artists is the ongoing war in Ukraine, and New York Musician Bill Greenberg has decided to express his views on the subject through his latest single simply titled ‘Ukraine.’

Working with the stark musical background of an acoustic guitar and harmonica, so reminiscent of those original protest songs from the ’60s Greenberg’s songs, as he puts it, envisions “a Ukrainian soldier withstanding Putin’s so-called “special military operation” repelling the destruction of their country and their homes—no matter what the cost to themselves or to their families.”

“I wanted the song released with a video in several languages allowing those most affected by the Ukrainian conflict to understand the consequence of the bloodshed,” he adds.

Stark background, and a strong message.
