Miljenko Matijević, lead vocalist and founder of the band Steelheart has written and released, ‘Trust in Love,’ an anthemic song with a timely message for the world. “Trust in Love” is available on all the major music streaming and downloading platforms.
Over two years in the making, the song was originally conceived as a plea for the peaceful unification of the Korean peninsula, but the song has evolved into a wider-reaching message for the masses. Amidst the current geopolitical climate, and the invasion and war on Ukraine in particular, Matijević’s song is inspirational and highly relevant. “One night after watching the news on television, I was saddened to hear about the pain and suffering that the people of North and South Korea are going through,” says Matijević. “I turned off the television and sat down at my piano, immediately the song started writing itself. The words ‘Trust in Love’ came to me, and I knew this song was meant for the Korean people. And now, in light of what’s happening in Ukraine, I feel that this message is something meant for the entire world.”
As part of his efforts to share this message with a global audience, the verses of “Trust in Love,” has been recorded in ten languages, English, Korean, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Hindi, Croatian, Chinese, Japanese, and Russian. Four more languages, French, German, Swedish, and Ukrainian are also in development.
In tandem with the release of the English version of the song, Matijević’s ongoing philanthropic efforts will support and promote unification and humanitarian relief efforts around the world.
Steelheart will be performing “TRUST IN LOVE” live for the first time at LA’s world-famous Whisky a Go Go as part of the venue’s Ultimate Jam Night Ukraine benefit on Tuesday, April 26, 2022. The full night of performances will be live streamed globally starting at 10 pm pst. For more information, visit Facebook.com/ultimatejamnight.
