American rock band OneRepublic released the track Better days, recorded by musicians in quarantine. The song is included in the album Human, which is scheduled for release in May.
“A few days before WHO announced the world’s coronavirus pandemic, some of us unknowingly encountered COVID-19 carriers at the end of our tour. After that, we were all quarantined in my studio, where we recorded this song. In it, we sing about real events that are happening in the world right now,” said the band’s frontman Ryan Tedder on Instagram.
The artist said that part of the proceeds from this song would be donated to the charity Fund MusiCares Covid-19. The organization was created to help all members of the music community affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
According to Variety, the musicians want to attract fans to create a video for the song Better days. They encourage everyone to share videos Online that show how they are currently living in this difficult time. For example, musicians will be happy to hear how volunteers work, find out how your city has changed during the quarantine or what you do in self-isolation while at home.
OneRepublic members will view the footage over the next few days using the Cinebody app.
