Suuns have shared a new single, “Breathe (feat. Jerusalem In My Heart),” from their forthcoming EP, Fiction, out October 30th on Joyful Noise Recordings. “Breathe” is a fully instrumental track featuring longtime friend of the band Radwan Ghazi Moumneh (Jerusalem In My Heart). Upon the release of “Breathe” and for the following 48 hours, all proceeds from sales of the track and the Fiction EP – both digital & physical – will be donated to the Basmeh and Zeitooneh Relief and Development.
Speaking about the new track, as well as their reasons for donating to this organisation, the band said: “This is us and Radwan Ghazi Moumneh having a good time, doing our thing, a moment in time among so many in our long and deep friendship together. Through him, we’ve had the privilege to visit and play in Beirut, a city of resilience and electricity, whose spirited people have become our enduring friends. We’ve been touched by the warmth of the people and changed by the depth of the music. Our love for it is deep, and it was beyond heartbreaking to witness the tragic destruction of August 4, 2020, and the suffering that persists even as the news media moves on.
For the first 48 hours, all sales from your purchase of BREATHE, and both physical and digital pre-orders of the Fiction EP, will go directly to Basmeh and Zeitooneh Relief and Development, a foundation that supports the most marginalized communities in the Middle East. That is to say, NOW IS THE TIME. This is our small way of reminding you to keep Beirut in your thoughts and in your payee list, and to say to Beirut that we love you.”
