Alternative rock/ hip-hop duo, Twenty One Pilots, have released a brand new song called ‘Level of Concern’.
The band had previously made suggestions that they would be releasing new music while in self isolation, and now the day has finally arrived.
The song’s music video shows the band’s members- Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun- sending a USB stick back and forth between each other’s homes, as they compose the track from within isolation- which is pretty impressive if you ask us. The song’s lyrics are also heavily based around the impact of COVID-19.
A percentage of the song’s proceeds will be donated to Crew Nation, which is a $10 million fund that was set up by Live Nation- the world’s largest concert ticket search engine- with the aim to raise money for concert tour crews around the world.
Front- man Tyler Joseph said he would like: “A portion of whatever money this song makes to go to this charity I saw called Crew Nation. It provides funding for people who work in the live music industry who don’t have a job right now.“
Adding: “No-one knows when live music will get back on its feet,” he continued. “I’ve met so many amazing people working venues and touring with bands. Hopefully we can do something to help some through this song.”

Twenty One Pilots released their fifth studio album, ‘Trench’, back in 2018 and are reportedly working on the follow- up. Although have confirmed that ‘Level of Concern’ is a stand- alone single, that they wanted to release to reflect their own feelings towards the current global pandemic.
