Stand Atlantic have released a new version of their song “Skinny Dipping”, featuring fellow Australian songwriter Alex Lahey. Listen below:
Proceeds from the track will benefit the It Gets Better Project, a nonprofi organization with a mission to uplift, empower, and connect members of the LGBTQ community. Lahey commented:
“I’m so excited to be involved in this release with Stand Atlantic to celebrate Pride Month and support ItGetsBetter. As a member of both the music and queer community, I know how important it is to support one another in order to make a greater difference. There is no better time than now to be your true self, exercise compassion, and stand up for what is right.”
Stand Atlantic vocalist/guitarist Bonnie Fraser adds:
“‘Skinny Dipping’ is about the push and pull of accepting yourself for who you are vs. how you want others to see you and catering to what you think they expect or want. In this case, I was dealing with my sexuality. Having Lahey on this track was exciting for us – I feel like we are from different music worlds and breaking those boundaries and expectations is important, and essentially what this track encompasses as a whole!”
The song is available digitally via iTunes and is also available for streaming via Spotify and Apple Music.
