UK: Nicki French sings for LGBT equality with “This Love”

It’s been a momentus summer for LGBT rights. In May Ireland legalized same-sex marriage. In June the United States followed suit. And now Eurovision 2000 alum Nicki French has released the new single and EP “This Love” which celebrates LGBT equality.

The lead single gives equality rhythm, bringing themes of love and tolerance to the dance floor. “We can make a vow,” she says. “We can swear it now, change the future from today.” See y’all at the aisle!

Nicki, who teamed up with Mike Stock of Stock Aitken and Waterman fame, has also re-worked two of her classics for the EP. You can check out a New Radio Edit Mix of “Total Eclipse of the Heart” and Real 2 Reel Mix of “Did You Ever Really Love Me”.

Miss French may have sung “Don’t Play That Song Again” at Eurovision. But we need you to ignore her command. “This Love” deserves to be on repeat.

“This Love” lyrics — Nicki French

We can make a vow, we can swear it now
Change the future from today

And it’s in our hands, we can make a plan
And honour every word we say

Yes, we’ve got the choice, say it as one voice
Together side by side

With an open heart, never drift apart
Solid as a rock in time

What we say now, we really mean
And like a time machine

We’ll see the whole world crumble,
We’re gonna see the mountains tumble
Before we say goodbye, my love and I …

We’ll see the earth dividing
We’ll see the sun and moon colliding
Before this love would ever die

Only have one dream, we can both believe
And we’re gonna make it through
In the rain and snow, this is our rainbow
Being loved and staying true

What we say now, we really mean
And like a time machine

We’ll see the whole world crumble
We’re gonna see the mountains tumble
Before we say goodbye, my love and I …

We’ll see the earth dividing
We’ll see the sun and moon colliding
Before this love would ever die.
