Album Notes
Nelson Mandela said, “No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” That sentiment is at the heart of Crys Matthews’ EP of social justice songs called Battle Hymn for an Army of Lovers. From the title track to We Must Be Free (an adaptation of Roberta Slavit’s Freedom is a Constant Struggle) Matthews offers an insightful soundtrack to the modern-day resistance. “The songs on this EP are intended to be a small offering of hope and encouragement during these unsettling times,” Matthews said. “I hope that they will remind us of our collective resilience and inspire all of us the way my mom, Nelson Mandela, Michelle Obama, Rita Mae Brown, Julia Ward Howe, and Eva Cassidy (via Curtis Mayfield) inspired the title track.”
