ONEREPUBLIC RELEASES UNIFYING VIDEO FOR “BETTER DAYS”
13 APRIL 2020 (TORONTO, ON) – Today, GRAMMY® nominated OneRepublic released their new video for “Better Days”. Watch it here! Upon the release of the song last month, OneRepublic invited fans to collaborate with them on their music video by sharing videos of their experiences at home, sharing acts of kindness, showing how they virtually stay connected to friends and family, how their neighborhoods and cities have changed and anything else they have been doing while staying safe and at home. The video, directed by OneRepublic and Josh Ricks, unites fans from around the world as they social distance apart. The song was written while the band was in quarantine for two-weeks after returning from their European tour.
OneRepublic and Interscope Records will donate a portion of the proceeds from the streaming of “Better Days” through September 2020 to benefit MusiCares® who have established the COVID-19 Relief Fund to help those in the music community affected by the Coronavirus pandemic.
