The U.S. electropop duo Twenty One Pilots is back at it again with the announcement that new music is indeed on the way, also noting that they want it to benefit charity.
Vocalist Tyler Joseph took to Twitter to say that he was “always writing,” which was enough hope in itself to get fans into a frenzy about new music, and then he followed it up by saying that “this one feels like it should just come out now.”
After fans began to blow up his Twitter feed by responding with heaps of excitement, Joseph continued with, “give me a few days to finish it up.”
Apparently, the Twenty One Pilots vocalist didn’t draw out a timeline, and seemed to regret hastily posting it to Twitter, stating: “a good rule of thumb is to never give yourself a deadline so tweeting about it kind of just added pressure,” adding, “it’s not done yet.”
Although there isn’t a deadline set for when the song will be finished, let alone released, Joseph continued by saying that he wanted a portion of the songs profits to benefit Crew Nation, a charity that is raising funds to help with the global relief of live music crews who have been stood down in the midst of COVID-19 tour cancellations.
“Live music inspires millions around the world,” the Crew Nation mission statement addresses, “but the concerts we all enjoy wouldn’t be possible without the countless crew members working behind the scenes. As COVID-19 puts concerts on pause, we want to extend a helping hand to the touring and venue crews who depend on shows to make a living.”
“It provides funding for people who work in the live music industry who don’t have a job right now,” Joseph ended with. With the music industry being crushed from the inside out by constant cancellations, we’ve seen a lot of musicians step up to the plate to help the industry that raised them in any way that they can, and Twenty One Pilots is certainly playing their part in helping out, too.
