German multi-instrumentalist Philipp Nespital (smalltape) published the official lyric video for “Colors” taken from the recent album “The Hungry Heart.” Watch the video through the YouTube player below:
Philipp comments: “This track might be the most controversial song on my recent album “The Hungry Heart“. Not surprisingly it was also one of the most difficult songs I’ve written to date.”
“While racism, bigotry and homophobia is unfortunately not unique to Germany, I chose to write the song through my perspective of living and growing up in this country. As someone who deeply believes in the principles of democracy, most importantly freedom and equality, I feel the urge to speak up against racism as an ally to those that are being discriminated against.
We give racism room to grow if we merely standby and watch or are willfully ignorant and look away. We can do a lot even by bravely speaking up and voicing that we disagree with discrimination and the violation of equality and civil rights for all.
My intent and hope is that this core message of allyship and love spreads to all that listen.”
