The track is officially premiering with The Recording Academy who Hoppus talked to about the collab. He describes the track as “one of those songs that came together very quickly, with everybody excitedly throwing ideas around… What emerged from the session is a track we’re all very proud of, and I hope everyone likes it as much as we do.”
The Used have an official music video planned for the track too with a special surprise for fans. They’re inviting fans to be part of the video by asking for video submissions of essential workers such as nurses, doctors, grocery store clerks and more. You can submit videos up until April 28 here.
The song itself is a mostly melancholic sounding track but quickly takes an upbeat turn for a brief funky break.
