Barbra Streisand Releases ‘Love Will Survice’

Recording her first-ever song for a television series, Barbra Streisand has announced “Love Will Survive,” the end title for the upcoming Sky and Peacock original series, The Tattooist of Auschwitz.

Composed by Hans Zimmer in collaboration with Kara Talve and Walter Afanasieff, with lyrics by Charlie Midnight, the iconic singer’s recording is backed by the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by William Ross.

Slated for an April 25 released ahead of the series May 2 premiere, about the project Streisand said:

“Because of the rise in antisemitism around the world today, I wanted to sing ‘Love Will Survive’ in the context of this series, as a way of remembering the six-million souls who were lost less than 80 years ago.”. “And also to say that even in the darkest of times, the power of love can triumph and endure.”

Starring Harvey Keitel, Melanie Lynskey, Jonah Hauer-King, Anna Próchniak, and Jonas Nay, the show centers on Lali, a Slovakian Jew who was deported to concentration camp Auschwitz in 1942.

Lali (Hauer-King), is made to be one of the Tätowierer (tattooist) who must ink the identification numbers on prisoners’ arms. He falls in love with Gita (Próchniak) when they meet as he is tattooing her prisoner number, and their love carries them through the horrors as they work to keep each other alive. The series then follows Lali (Keitel) some 60 years later when he is in his eighties. He encounters aspiring writer Heather Morris (Lynskey), with whom he recounts his story after becoming widowed, and confronts the traumas and also relives falling in love in the most impossible, darkest of places and circumstances.
