Juanes plays new song at U.N. #ShareHumanity event
Fans catching Juanes live recently have been in for surprise performances of new songs. That happened again Tuesday night at the U.N.’s #ShareHumanity event celebrating World Humanitarian Day, and EW is excited to debut video footage from the show.
Before performing, the Latin singer said a few words about his new composition, which does not have a title. He detailed the old process and chain of command of sharing songs, and reflected on changed times of music sharing. “I wrote a song three days ago,” he told the crowd. “I knew I was going to come here, and I was thinking just to do something special.”
The song isn’t as dance-y or high-energy as the 43-year-old’s other cuts, but he does throw in a guitar solo in the middle before heading to the bridge, in English, ushering the audience to sing along: “This world just needs more love.”
Juanes appeared at May’s Sunset Music Festival and joined Gervais on stage to debut an EDM-heavy cut called “Este Amor.”
