‘Freedom’ is the new anti-Trump protest song written by Scottish singer-songwriter, Beldon Haigh.
Whilst you might be wondering why a Scotsman is passionate enough to write a song against the new President of the United States, he actually has a justified cause. Beldon’s wife is a Honduran immigrant whose family in the US are fearing for their lives and the threat of deportation under Trump’s reign. On top of this, Beldon is the father of three children and he feels that Trump’s views are not what we should setting as an example to the younger generations.
Consequently, after the idea for the song came to him in a dream, Beldon penned his song and began to get it tracked at his home studio in Falkirk, before voyaging off to New York to record the piano and strings and finally having the track mastered in LA.
Beldon’s music is all about voicing the sentiments of thousands, if not millions and he does this through a potent combination of clever, often witty, songwriting and clean, uncomplicated musicianship that allows the true meaning of the song to take centre stage.
