Friday May 1, 2020 – Released today, HILLTOP HOODS have written a song from, and about isolation titled ‘I’M GOOD?’, with proceeds from the track going to the SUPPORT ACT ‘Roadies (Crew) Fund’. The band had been in lockdown writing their new album but decided to take a break and work on something that would help road and support crew – including those whose livelihoods have been devastated by the impact of COVID-19.
‘I’M GOOD?’ will be available on all digital platforms on Friday May 1. Proceeds from the artist, record label and publisher royalties from streams and downloads of ‘I’M GOOD?’ will go directly to SUPPORT ACT ‘Roadies (Crew) Fund’. Additionally, Island Records/Universal Music Australia, Sony/ATV Music Publishing (Australia) Pty Ltd, Blue Max Music, and Media Arts Lawyers are chipping in $2,500 each to kick off the fundraising.
On the production side of things, the band has enlisted SIXFOUR (Paul and John Bartlett) to produce, Plutonic Lab (Leigh Ryan) to mix and Alex Mader of Disk Edits to master the track.
Regarding the release of the song, the band had this to say: ‘It’s a very dark time at the moment, so we wanted to make something light-hearted, we’re hoping that the song might give someone a laugh and maybe lift their spirits. But ultimately what we want to do is raise money for the roadies and associated support crew – including those who have lost their livelihoods due to this pandemic.’
‘I’M GOOD?’ is out Friday May 1 through HTH/UMA and is available here
