At a time when live music remains nothing but a distant dream amid strict social distancing guidelines, artists are doing their best to keep the music going by turning their work into live streamable content.
While we have seen a number of musicians attempt to put their own spin on work by their contemporaries during the lockdown, anything to date has yet to match the somewhat bizarre crossover of Rick Astley laying down his own rendition of the Foo Fighters.
“Sometimes you just have to find a song that’s gonna lift your spirits and put you in another place, and I’ve been doing that a lot recently with music,” Astley said.
“One of the bands I always go to, believe it or not, is Foo Fighters.”
See his rendition of ‘Everlong’, below.
