The official song of Quarantine 2020 has finally arrived.
When Luke first debuted “Six Feet Apart” two weeks ago, I’m not sure if even he knew he was going to get in the studio and record it this quickly. But given the response from the fans, it was either now or never.
Co-written with Brent Cobb and Rob Snyder, “Six Feet Apart” is obviously about being stuck in quarantine, but more importantly it’s about missing all the things that used to be part of everyday life and longing for the day when it’s all over. If nothing else, it should serve as a reminder to appreciate the little things in life, like handshakes and hugs, and not take them for granted.
“I miss my mom, I miss my dad I miss the road, I miss my band Giving hugs and shaking hands It’s a mystery I suppose Just how long this thing goes But there’ll be crowds and there’ll be shows And there will be light after dark Some day when we aren’t six feet apart.”
We always say things like “Luke is the man of the people” and “Luke is the people’s champ” and while it might just come off as a funny way to hype up an artist that we love and respect, it really is the truth.
The fans wanted this song, and some of the fans, they needed this song. To help them get through this tough time or even to just give them a little encouragement. And for those that lost jobs, or God forbid lost loved ones, this might be a small slice of hope, a reminder that there really will be light after all of this dark.
So thank you Luke. Thank you once again for always putting the fans first.
