Dutch Excite partner Popfabryk decided to set up a live-stream co-writing session between two international artists through Zoom and have them talk about COVID-19. The artists meet each other for the first time on Zoom. They record their conversations and work on an online writing process, each from their own studio or living room. The result of the writing session is a brand new song, written by two international artists, inspired by their personal views on the virus.
