OK Go Shares New Song “All Together Now”
- Los Angeles-based rock band OK Go has shared a new song “All Together Now” in honor of frontline health care workers battling the COVID-19 pandemic.
The band recorded the track in their homes in Los Angeles over the past two months. The accompanying music video features the band members performing the song in quarantine. Directed by Damian Kulash, Jr.
“We put it out late last night and I looked then,” Frontman Damian Kulash said. “Before I went to bed. I was pleased to see how it was emotionally resonating with people.”
“That’s what I want to share. That’s why I feel teary when I go out to the balcony and I hear people cheering. It’s this feeling that all these people trying to tell each other every night that we’re going to be OK.”
Proceeds from the song will be donated to nonprofit organization Partners in Health to bring healthcare access to at-risk populations who can't afford it.
He said, “This isn’t the clever new video we’ve been working on for months or the lead single from our new album; there’s no campaign.”
- He also revealed he and his wife had coronavirus, and have recovered.
“She was only briefly at the hospital, but bedridden with breathing problems for a long stretch. As she convalesced, I struggled to keep up with our two-year-old twins, and there were times when her breathing was so labored I worried she just wouldn’t wake up.”
“Now, I have to be careful here,” he said. “This disaster is so much more vicious for so many people.”
