Lauv has dropped an acoustic version of his single “Modern Loneliness” to help benefit Partners in Health pandemic relief efforts.
“Modern Loneliness” was written as both a statement and a commentary on society and our relationships with social media, where we are increasingly “alone together.” In addition to taking part in live-streams with Global Citizen and Twitch, Lauv also held an at-home live-stream concert on his YouTube channel and raised an additional $12k after matching every dollar that was raised. In total between the merch bundle and livestreams, Lauv has raised over $30k so far.
All future streams and revenue from the acoustic “Modern Loneliness” will be going to the relief efforts as well.
Lauv performed the single on both The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Good Morning America. The track is off his 21-track debut album ~how i'm feeling~ that was released on March 6th and has been streamed over 100 million times since its release and had a Top 20 chart debut around the world, including in the U.S., UK, Australia and Canada.
