🇺🇦 Jamala releases new single “Tsina Pravdy”

Eurovision 2016 winner Jamala returns with new music! This time in the form of an OST titled “Tsina Pravdy” (The Price of Truth).

The backstory

Jamala’s single is an OST for the Ukrainian release of Mr Jones. The world premiere was back in February, but the release date in Ukraine is this Thursday.

Mr Jones, or The Price of Truth as the movie is titled in Ukraine, tells the story of Welsh journalist Gareth Jones who travels to the Soviet Union in 1933. Jones uncovers many unpleasant truths on his visit, as he ends up discovering the Ukrainian genocide (Holodomor).

The Holodomor, literally translated to “death by hunger”, took place in 1932 and 1933. During the height of the Holodomor in June 1933, around 28,000 men, women and children from Ukraine died of starvation everyday.

On your lips, words are sleeping
The darkness touches them
The world is blind and deaf
You are alone in the center of the silence

Why are the dreams of strangers important to you?
Where pain and torment are forever
Why didn’t you stay on the edge?
Please, take the final step

Keep your faith
Without hope, that’s how life was arranged
Do not give up
This is your chance to not disappear into oblivion

Keep your faith
The truth will come out
It cannot be defeated
Do not give up
You can become a hero

You are a hero

Everything has its price
And the price was fully paid
For all of those who left
You are the only one who knows this truth

Your voice is the voice of the voiceless
Of lovers, of the gentle and the unbroken
Without you they will not be heard
Please, take the final step

Keep your faith
Without hope, that’s how life was arranged
Do not give up
This is your chance to not disappear into oblivion

Keep your faith
The truth will come out
It cannot be defeated
Do not give up
You can become a hero

The world is blind
The words are sleeping
You are alone

Why are the dreams of strangers important to you?
Where pain and torment are forever
Why didn’t you stay on the edge?
Please, take the final step

Keep your faith
Without hope, that’s how life was arranged
Do not give up
This is your chance to not disappear into oblivion

Keep your faith
The truth will come out
It cannot be defeated
Do not give up
You can become a hero
