Stand Atlantic have gone in and re-recorded the title-track off their 2018 album 'Skinny Dipping' with Australian singer-songwriter Alex Lahey, and all proceeds going to an LGBTQ+ charity organisation.
Discussing the meaning of the song, Stand Atlantic frontwoman Bonnie Fraser has shared "'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!"
"I'm so excited to be involved in this release with Stand Atlantic to celebrate Pride Month and support It Gets Better," shared Alex Lahey. “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.”
All proceeds from the collaboration will benefit the It Gets Better Project, a nonprofit organisation with a mission to uplift, empower, and connect members of the LGBTQ community.
