A Melbourne punk band has released a song dedicated to the twin cities.

The single titled Albury Wodonga by the band Private Function is the second release of their studio album Whose line is it anyway? and is described as a "rock 'n' roll love letter to Australia's cherished twin cities".

In a statement the band said the songis a "punk-rock celebration of the harmony between the two" cities.

"In a time where the two key VIC/NSW border towns are separated not only by the Murray River but also a quarantine roadblock, the new Private Function single Albury Wodonga celebrates the unity and love between the two namesake locales," the band said.

"The track is an ode to not only arriving at the crown jewel of the Hume Highway, but the joys and memories made along the way.

"To the good people in Albury-Wodonga who are going through the tough times of 2020, this one is for you."

The single is accompanied by a music video of the band road tripping up and down the Hume Freeway and down the two main streets.

The catchy chorus is already attracting attention on social media with the lyrics "Albury-Wodonga, I can't believe the spell that I'm under, I love Albury-Wodonga."
