Mark Foster, of Foster the People, has made music that’s moved millions, but when he saw a story about a teenage girl, Nanae Munemasa, who faced bullying so severe in her native Japan that she contemplated suicide and then found refuge in music, he was moved to take action.
After opening a campaign on IndieGoGo, Foster brought Munemasa and her brother to a professional studio in Los Angeles to work together, and the result of that extraordinarily unique collaboration arrives today in the form of “Hide & Seek,” a new bundle that includes both Munemasa’s impressively powerful track and a remix by Foster the People that gives the hard charging original a bouncier, more electronic feel.
Nearly 50% of high school students report being bullied every month, and studies have linked nearly half of teen suicides to bullying. Stats like that can make the internet, and the real world, feel like a particularly cruel place, but you don’t have to look hard for evidence of an even greater drive towards connection and kindness. It’s right here.
