During quarantine, OneRepublic recorded its song “Better Days”, which has been released online and is featured on the band’s album “Human” set to be released in May.
“We were in the final week of our fifth album deadline when a global pandemic was declared by the WHO. A few of us unknowingly got exposed to somebody with COVID-19 in London and ended up in quarantine in L.A. at my studio for two weeks. With only two songs left to finish, one of them happened to be ‘Better Days.’ We write about real experiences and events that happen to us — this is what happens when you write a song during a crisis,” lead singer Ryan Tedder said on Instagram.
Through September 2020, a portion of the streams of “Better Days” will be donated to MusiCares’ COVID-19 Relief Fund to help fellow artists whose livelihoods have been affected by the pandemic.
According to Variety, OneRepublic is also inviting fans to collaborate on their music video for “Better Days.” Launched yesterday, the group wants fans to share their videos at home, sharing acts of kindness. They want to hear from first responders, survivors, volunteers on how they are keeping healthy, what they are cooking, how they are virtually staying connected with friends and family, how their pets are keeping them company, and safely sending footage of your neighborhood or city and how’s it’s changed and anything else that creatively expresses what you are doing while staying safe and staying home.
