“I was officially missing the dance floor during corona,” Cohen says. “We were on tour in Europe, and we did seven shows out of what was supposed to be 30 before we came back home and went straight into quarantine. I was inside with four walls and a little balcony, and I was playing songs in my house and dancing alone.”
