"You can hear the exuberance we have playing together in the same room again." With it comes a video celebrating creativity and connection with artists Joseph Arthur & UnCuttArt, directed by David Wexler (Motorcycle Drive By, TriBeCa Film Festival 2020) and inspired by Marina Abramovi 263; 's legendary art installation, The Artist Is Present. Fans can get an inside look at the creation of the album in the companion documentary, "How We Hold Each Other Right Now: The Making Of Our Bande Apart."
