"Stand" is a song by American pop singer–songwriter Jewel from her fourth studio album, 0304 (2003). Written and produced by Jewel and Lester Mendez, and released as the album's second single in October 2003 in the United States and later on internationally, the single failed to chart on the Billboard Hot 100. It reached number sixteen on the Hot 100 Singles Sales chart, and also became Jewel's third consecutive chart-topper on the Hot Dance Club Play.

Background and writing[edit]

"Stand" was written and produced by Kilcher and Lester Mendez.[1]

Critical reception[edit]

Todd Burns from Stylus Magazine wrote that "It is a strong first song and while the lyrics are vaguely suspect, they can be ignored in favor of the driving beat."[2]

Commercial release[edit]

The single edit saw no alteration from its original version. However, it was listed as Single Mix on some promotional singles, which is no different from the album version.

"Stand" was released in two formats in the U.S.; the CD single contains "Stand" and the 0304 trumpet-driven track "Leave the Lights On" as a coupling track, while the CD maxi single contains the song's club mixes. Both singles contained two different covers. International singles received the title track and some club mixes for its final release.

Music video[edit]

The music video for the single was directed by Chris Applebaum. It shows Jewel and some of the events described throughout the song's lyrics.
