Twenty One Pilots have shared Level of Concern (live from outside), an alternate version of their hit single Level of Concern, featuring additional performances from friends and collaborators Paul Meany (Mutemath), Jesse Blum (MisterWives), and Simon Jefferis.
The concept for the reimagined take developed as Twenty One Pilots went to work on recording a remote performance of Level of Concern for The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon: At Home Edition. The performance, which is streaming now on The Tonight Show’s YouTube channel, sees each musician delivering an open-air performance while in quarantine.
Written and recorded amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, Level of Concern has proven to be a multi-format hit currently sitting at #1 on Billboard’s “Alternative Songs” and “Rock Airplay” charts, while rising on both the “Adult Pop Songs” and “Pop Songs” tallies. The song, which features an official music video directed by longtime collaborator Reel Bear Media has already surpassed 30 million views in just one month while the track has amassed over 100 million streams around the globe. The duo of Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun will be donating a portion of the proceeds from “Level of Concern” to Crew Nation, a global relief fund for live music crews, which aims to help touring and venue crews affected by the Coronavirus pandemic.
Level of Concern is the first new music from Twenty One Pilots since the release of their 2018 RIAA platinum-certified LP TRENCH. A true global phenomenon having surpassed two billion streams worldwide, TRENCH earned Twenty One Pilots Top 5 chart debuts around the globe including the U.S., U.K., Belgium, Canada, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Scotland, Sweden, Australia, New Zealand, and The Netherlands.
