Foster The People drops new single 'The Things We Do'
10 July 2020
Grammy nominated band Foster The People released their latest single “The Things We Do,” available everywhere today.
“The Things We Do” is the band’s third single this year, following the recent success of “It’s Ok to be Human” and “Lamb’s Wool.” Over the course of the last several months, Foster the People has released recordings of songs that are salves during this unprecedented time. “The Things We Do” is no exception. Foster the People will donate all proceeds to four organizations that have been advocating for social and political justice reform and while combatting discrimination of marginalized communities.
Mark Foster says: “I wrote this song last year, unaware that the world was about to experience a major shift on many fronts. As I have done a lot of reflecting over the last few months, I feel a strong pull to put out music antithetical to the times we’re living in. Music has always been a great comforter in my darkest hours. We are donating 100% of the proceeds of this song to four charities we have chosen in support of our black brothers and sisters fighting for a better world. 25% is going to Black Lives Matter International. 25% to The Bail Project. 25% to Rebuild Foundation, and 25% to The Underground Museum. This song and the money it generates will go to these organizations forever as they continue to face new challenges with the ever evolving state of the world.”
