A global collective of 39 independent artists have joined forces to record an album while isolating amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The result is Alone Together, a 13-track album of original material, available 8 May. All proceeds from sales and streams of the LP will benefit the WHO’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund. Ahead of the album, the group released a stunning and soulful cover of The Beatles’ ‘Come Together’.
Impressively, the entire project came about only three weeks ago. Alone Together was the brainchild of the London-based artist and writer Adam Lee and the Los Angeles-based singer Jessica Louise. Initially, the duo only reached out to a few musician friends, but the project continued to grow, as participants signed on from around the world. They include the LA-based soul singer-songwriter and guitarist David Ryan Harris, drummer Terence Clark from Memphis, the UK’s Zack Knight, New Zealand’s Emily Browning and Montreal’s Anomalie, among many others.
The album’s 13 songs were written, recorded, mixed and mastered entirely at home by the various participants.
