Bon Jovi have released Do What You Can, alongside an accompanying music video. Take a look above.
The video depicts Jon Bon Jovi taking to the streets of New York City during the current coronavirus pandemic, encountering the signs of the virus’ impact on the city, many of which now seem commonplace: social distancing notices, closed schools and businesses, and masks. A Makeshift hospital in Central Park and a Red Cross boat on the Hudson are also shown.
The song, as the title suggests, is dedicated to the essential workers who have kept services running throughout the pandemic. The video ends with a specific dedication to “the everyday heroes fighting to rise above the pandemic.”
In a statement about the song, Jon Bon Jovi said: “Shooting a video on nearly empty streets of Manhattan amid a global crisis really told the story of ‘Do What You Can’ from the place where I lived it. And I know those empty streets look similar to so many parts of America battling this pandemic. But the story of everyday heroes showing amazing courage was inspiring to see and the video, much like the song, has a great deal of hope in it too.”
