Watch Blossoms cover The Beatles song ‘Paperback Writer’

Blossoms have shared their cover of The Beatles’ ‘Paperback Writer‘ from self-isolation following on from their recent version of Frank Ocean’s ‘Lost’.

The five-piece filmed the harmonious cover from their individual homes and the result is incredibly special. The Stockport band’s take on the 1966 classic from The Fab Four is up there as the finest cover we’ve been treated to over the last few weeks as artists try to keep busy.

Last week, Blossoms announced the release of a new live album from their performance at their homecoming gig at Stockport Plaza on February 11th. One song from the record will be released each week, following the order of the setlist.

The full version of ‘Live At The Plaza Theatre, Stockport’ will be released on July 3, with physical copies to follow later in the year. The first track they have shared is ‘If You Think This Is Real Life’ which also opens their latest record Foolish Loving Spaces.

The band have also recently reschudeled their tour which was due to take place last month to the summer, taking to Twitter they shared the newly scheduled dates, writing: “Hiya. Obviously we were all gutted to have to postpone the rest of our March dates. These shows have now been rescheduled for August. Keep hold of your tickets as they’ll remain valid for the new dates. We cant wait to see you all then”.

For now though, enjoy their cover version of The Beatles.
