“Life is about joy. So why do we tend to let life get in the way of joy?” said The Piano Guys. “We’ve been through a great deal of ups and downs, drastic changes, and even tragedies this past year. Jon and his family, especially, have suffered at the hands of brutal uncertainty, impending hopelessness, and inexplicable loss. We offer this song as a musical manifestation of what we felt.”
