The band's new single, "Better Days," aims to encourage the world to get through the epidemic together:

"Oh, I know that there'll be better days
Oh, that sunshine 'bout to come my way
May we never ever shed another tear for today
'Cause oh, I know that there'll be better days"

The band and their record label will be donating part of the streaming revenue from OneRepublic's single "Better Days" to musicians affected by the pandemic. The band's new album, "Human," is almost finished and will be released soon, according to the the label.
