Queen and Lambert were scheduled to be on the European stage of their Rhapsody tour, though ongoing pandemic led the musicians to postpone the dates. However, this song was recorded while May, Taylor and Lambert all isolated in separate cities.

The 2½ minute video begins with a dedication to frontline workers: "To all you frontline warriors fighting coronavirus worldwide." The video then switches to a three screen part of May, Lambert and Taylor performing the song.

The group aims to raise $ 7.5 million over 60 days. After just one day online, the goal has already been more than halfway achieved.

They are not the only ones who have turned to music in the midst of the pandemic.
