While the world went on lockdown, the Daybreaker community came together virtually to write, record, and release “Joy Generation” with the Brothers Koren.
To celebrate one year of shifting to online parties since March 2020, 350 plus members, guided by the Brothers Koren, took on the challenge of writing an anthem. Daybreaker founder Radha Agrawal proudly shares with us:
We asked our community members to stick around after to write our new Daybreaker anthem with us. 350+ community members stayed to attempt something never done before: to lace together a song while miles apart, expressing the palpable anticipation of a return to IRL. We longed for an anthem that would take us out of the darkness and into a new more hopeful generation. We sat down in front of our little cameras, intent to harmoniously surface verses about the start of a new cultural Renaissance. The Brothers Koren masterfully shepherded us through the process of co-creating the song. Someone would spontaneously unmute themselves and provide a note, then another, and another: ideas. phrases, lyrics floated across the web. We jammed, we cried, we laughed…And then suddenly, we had an anthem, freeing and naming us: The Joy Generation.’
