Van Morrison performs at Bill Wyman's 80th Birthday Gala as part of BluesFest London at Indigo at The O2 Arena on Oct. 28, 2016 in London, England.

Van Morrison is continuing his musical streak against the COVID-19 restrictions, bringing Eric Clapton along for the ride in their new collaboration, "Stand And Deliver."

The track supports Morrison's ongoing Save Live Music campaign.

"Do you wanna be a free man / Or do you wanna be a slave? / Do you wanna wear these chains / Until you're lying in the grave?" the duo sing on the track released on Friday (Dec. 18), before a chorus that preaches a similar sentiment: "Stand and deliver / You let them put the fear on you."

"Stand And Deliver" follows a few other anti-lockdown protest tracks from Morrison, including "Born to Be Free" and the more directly titled "No More Lockdown."

Proceeds from "Stand and Deliver" will benefit Morrison’s Lockdown Financial Hardship Fund, which aims to assist musicians who are struggling amid the coronavirus pandemic, Variety reports.
