Story behind the song

‘Catch if you fall’ is about a helping hand outstretched to overcome mental and physical difficulties together.

Eldar comments on the concept behind the song:

It’s easy to turn a blind eye and to pretend everything is fine. Easy and cowardly. There are people who need us, our words, our support. It would be so great if everyone in this world at least once in a lifetime would have strength and ability to help someone.

The official music video of Eldar’s latest single has been directed and scripted by Ganbar Mammadov and Omar Abulkarimov and features Eldar, Okhchu, Shakhmuradov, Marina Dar.
