Alec Benjamin unveiled a very timely new song titled "6 Ft. Apart" on Thursday morning (April 2), and an hour later, he sang it for the first time during his Billboard Live-At-Home concert.
The singer-songwriter began his short-but-sweet Facebook Live session with the new tune, which he just penned Wednesday while quarantined at home. "It's actually very pertinent, because the song is about the current state of affairs in the world," Benjamin said. "It's about COVID-19 and this whole social distancing thing. I'm not saying anything, I'm just like, this is how I feel."
Because the song was so new, Benjamin struggled with the lyrics at first -- though it could've been the fact that he'd pulled an all-nighter to finish the track. "I haven't really done [that] since college," he said, "and I haven't been in college since I was a freshman, so it's been some time."
