Robin Skinner – aka Cavetown – has made a big announcement today: as well as sharing new single frog (from upcoming album worm food), the musician has unveiled details of his new This Is Home Project.

Set to donate a minimum of $1million over the next three years, the project’s aim is to “empower and support” LGBTQ+ youth by donating to various foundations and making more financial help and resources available.

“I’m so excited to finally share this with u!!!” says Robin. “For the past year, I’ve been working on something special called the This Is Home Project. I wanted to create a way to better support young LGBTQ+ people who are in need of financial help and resources, both on an individual and community-wide scale. I'm also aiming to bring more funding to foundations whose sole focus is providing access to LGBTQ+ youth for physical and mental healthcare, safe housing, and a whole bunch more. u can learn lots more at!!!”

Cavetown has also dropped new single frog, which they explain is about his girlfriend: “We were both too shy to ask each other to be boyfriend and girlfriend, so one day I showed her a frog meme that said, ‘GF stands for girl-frog and BF stands for boy-frog’ and I said, ‘That’s us!’ She makes me feel better when I’m too inside my head and helps me remember to be present with the ones I care about.

“The frog synth is a combo of Logic synths that I mixed together and was really fun to create. Similar to 1994, I thought about how the synth sounds would translate live and how people could hop around during the frog solo. I used to play a melodica at shows, which would have had a similar effect as the frog synth, but then we’d have to retune the entire set, so the melodica was retired for now.”
