Twenty One Pilots aren’t letting COVID-19 prevent them from teaming up. The band recently released their first new single in two years, “Level of Concern.”
The song was written and recorded in self-isolation during the COVID-19 pandemic. “Always writing, but this one feels like it should just come out now,” Tyler Joseph wrote on Twitter, “I think it’s simple but hopeful,” noting that it’s the first song he has ever written on electric guitar.
Twenty One Pilots also shared the accompanying video, directed by Reel Bear Media, which features footage of the two members in their separate studios sending audio and video files to each other to finish the new song.
Watch the video below.
Joseph and Josh Dun will donate a portion of the proceeds from “Level of Concern” to Crew Nation, a global relief fund for live music crews, which aims to help touring and venue crews affected by the coronavirus pandemic. Learn more about the foundation here.
