Walter Trout and Provogue Records / Mascot Label Group have presented a new music video for his song “We’re All In This Together,” featuring Joe Bonamassa, that compiles imagery of fans across the globe as they navigate a world of social distancing amidst the pandemic.
Several weeks ago, Walter posted a message to fans which read, “Around the globe, we are currently going through unprecedented times with millions of us asked to stay at home. Doctors, nurses, hospital employees, and other essential workers are putting their lives on the line to treat those who are ill. It’s a time where we all need to come out together to wipe out this virus once and for all. I want to show that people all over the world are doing their part to fight the virus in a music video for my song, ‘We’re All In This Together. It would mean a lot if you would take a moment to take a picture or video of yourself, whether it be at home, at your job as a health care worker, or at any other place where you are doing your part, and in this picture, please hold up a sign showing where you are from!”
The end result of this endeavor truly captures a glimpse of our global population as we all navigate these challenging times. A moment where the ability for musicians to bring their art to the stage has been momentarily halted for the sake of The World’s inevitable return to normalcy. Please join Walter and all whom have contributed in sharing or simply viewing this video that captures a moment in time none of us ever envisioned being our collective reality.
Additionally, Walter’s wife and manager Marie Trout, PhD offers an insightful editorial on the power of live music, which can be read here.
