NEW WORLD SONGS under Lockdown

by Djanan Turan

Love Company Let love accompany you On these bumpy roads Lock your hands forever And enjoy the ride Life is only short And you have walked alone Now just trust the moment and let it take control Your heart will only follow fear To feel right at home Now it is time to keep it simple Don’t let fear cripple your thoughts In their eyes they’ll show you Blooming paths of the earth In their arms they offer Million acres of warmth Let love accompany you On these bumpy roads Lock your hands forever and enjoy the ride Your heart will only follow fear To feel right at home Now it is time to keep it simple Don’t let fear cripple your thoughts Your heart will only follow fear To feel right at home Now it is time to keep it simple Don’t let fear cripple your thoughts
You have chosen life Just like any other soul But its not you or I Who will cruelly make the call Wish I had the power, to wipe out this order I would have less if that’ld give you A chance to grow I would hold you in my arms Twinkly little star Let you grow with love, only love I am not going to lie or try and convince you That we know what is fair or there is justice to protect you Like this is not enough, there’s a darker truth Some do not cry as they are snatching your youth Now all that I can say You’re a diamond in black We’ll remember with love Please forget all you’ve seen There’s still beauty in this world Why you’ve not been granted rips my heart apart Your stay was short and your family was helpless Remember them fondly, it wasn’t their fault Hope you feel it in your bones As you trade your path That we send you with love, only love What we’ve built all around you Noone could stand Wherever you’re going I do understand As you’re walking out of this man made hell I wish I were with you Holding your little hand Hold your little palm Walking along Walking with love, only love

New World Songs from Lockdown is a project by Djanan Turan, an immigrant mother originally from Turkey, a female producer singer songwriter who has been based in London's creative and musical community for the past 20 years.

​Djanan has been writing a new album for the last two years in which she expresses her challenges with sense of belonging within this world that has been consistently increasing it’s brutality on some. With these emotional struggles more amplified since having had her baby, she is using the power of songs to contribute towards a world of beauty and justice, with a heart and mind that struggles to settle in what she can’t agree with. Despite a discernible resentment, they encompass the secrets she shares, towards a better world.

The album was meant to be recorded in the studio and released in October 2020. In a drastic change of events, in light of a global lockdown and it’s new way of life Djanan decided to go ahead with producing this album with kindred musicians in lockdown. Recording her ideas at home she is now sharing the files with other musicians who record their parts working remotely in their home studios.

This collaboration between 10+ globally experienced musicians whom Djanan met at different stages of her musical journey is an unexpected and inspirational get together in times where they feel music is much needed.

Djanan created the project New World Songs from Lockdown’ with the hope to establish a bond between herself, the musicians involved but most importantly with the audience to envision a world of values driven by love and trust. Djanan who is certain that this project will connect many dreamers together and coming out from the other end of the pandemic, they will have set an ecosystem where there is no longer any acceptance for sacrifice for the greater good.
