Milky Chance have released an EP of acoustic tracks from their new album ‘Mind The Moon’ recorded whilst in isolation. The series of tracks – ‘Stay Home Sessions’ – which were originally released as videos on the band’s official Instagram over the last few weeks, feature the band members performing together via split screen from their respective homes in Germany.
The band say “Since we all need to stay home but wanted to continue making music together, we came up with these multi-home-recorded acoustic versions … we‘re sending love to all of you! Stay safe everybody!”
The session also sees the band collaborate with a unique and remarkable choir of fans on ‘Eden’s House’, originally performed by Ladysmith Black Mambazo on the album version.

The band are passionate and proactive supporters of climate change with their own blog – Milky Chance here – discussing their environmentally sustainable activities from recording music to how they are approaching touring internationally. The band describe their mission:
“Our goal is to shine some light on the issue of climate change and sustainability, and how this specifically affects the world of music. We think the best way to bring about the change that the world so desperately needs is by changing ourselves first.
Let’s radiate goodness and make a difference.”
Milky Chance’s staggering global success started with their single ‘Stolen Dance’, taken from their debut album ‘Sadnecessary’ – which became a global phenomenon. Their second album, ‘Blossom’, saw the band play 241 shows in 41 countries.
Whether it’s playing the world’s most famous festivals like Coachella, amassing over 2 billion track streams, or their 30 gold/platinum awards; Milky Chance have caught the imagination of millions through their unique style that sees the band unrivalled.
