In an official press release, the duet talked about the meaning of the song

What makes us human?
We all know life can be tough. It can feel impossible, draining and lonely.
But we’re not alone.
We’re more the same than we are different.
If we can let go of what doesn’t serve us and grow from it as individuals and as a society, then we can create a world that’s rooted in love, connection and expression.
A world that everyone has a place in.
We can build a new life by learning from our past and focusing on a new and brighter future.
Here’s to that future.
