You may notice that Imagine Dragons‘ new single “I Was Me” is currently climbing up the iTunes download chart, though it doesn’t appear on streaming services such as Spotify. That’s because the band has teamed with multinational software company SAP to create the One4 Project, which aims to support refugee relief efforts overseas.

According to a press release, Apple, Imagine Dragons and the band’s label, KIDinaKORNER/Interscope, will donate their respective proceeds from paid downloads of “I Was Me” to the UN Refugee Agency, with SAP then donating 10 cents for every download up to the first 5 million downloads from iTunes — so, potentially, $500,000.

“The song ‘I Was Me’ is about people trying to regain their life, which is exactly what millions of people are going through right now,” Imagine Dragons frontman Dan Reynolds says in a short video clip explaining the band’s involvement in the cause. Watch it below, and if you like what you hear, grab the single from iTunes.
