Artists remotely collaborate across the globe to create Alone Together album
The album was recorded over two weeks from the homes of 39 artists during the coronavirus pandemic.
Alone Together is an album created through online collaboration by promising young talent from all over the world, during social distancing, which COVID-19 has forced us into.
With support from music distribution and artist services company, Amuse, a broad range of producers, songwriters and musicians have come together, “bridging the global and local borders of self-isolation”, Amuse says. The album even leads with a rendition of Come Together by The Beatles, followed by 13 original songs from the 39 acts involved. All proceedings from the album will be donated to the WHO and UN’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.
UK R&B producer Zack Knight, Canadian electronic producer, Anomalie and Grammy-nominated Austrian producer, Yakob, are just some of the established artists involved in the ambitious project. Spearheaded by London-based musician, Adam Lee and LA-based Singer, Jessica Louise, Alone Together acts as a sonic document to mark a unique moment in history. “I feel like this album is a time-capsule. It acts as a collective experience of this time in our lives”, says Jessica Louise.
“Managing rights, royalty payouts and reports on how the music is performing would normally be a very time-consuming job for a big collaborative project like this, but our newly launched Pro service automates these tasks in a seamless way, helping creatives focus on what matters: the music. Companies like ours don’t exist without creators and now is the time to assist them to find new ways to work together,” said Diego Farias, co-founder and CEO of Amuse.
