Neil Diamond wants his song to encourage people to wash their hands and to practice safe self-distancing.

MALIBU BEACH, California – Neil Diamond has sold over 100 million songs from Brooklyn to Bombay. He recently spoke with The Los Angeles Post-Gazette about the dreaded Coronavirus.

The 79-year-old singer, who very rarely uses his diamond-studded walker, said that he was trying to figure out a way to contribute toward the understanding of C-19.

He decided that one way would be to alter the words to one of his biggest hits “Sweet Caroline.”

So Diamond, with the help of fellow singer Neil Young, re-recorded the song, with the revamped lyrics, which are now: “Hands, washing hands, reaching out, not touching me, not touching you.”

The new version will be released as “Sweet Isolated Caroline” by Neil & Neil.

Diamond said that all proceeds will go to purchase N95 masks, gloves, and Pop Tarts for the Underprivileged Children of Beverly Hills.
