Slowthai covers Portishead song 'Glory Box' for BBC


Slowthai stopped by the BBC Live Lounge with feat Kamaal Williams and Grace Acladna to perform their cover of Slowthai classic ‘Glory Box’.

The 24-year-old performed the lead single from his new album, ‘Gorgeous’, as well as Portishead’s 1995 track which appeared on their pioneering album Dummy.

Promoting his new album Nothing Great About Britain, which drop on May 17th, Slowthai decided to slow things down little bit for the live session.

Here it is:

In a recent interview with Apple Music’s Beats 1 radio show host, Julie Adenuga Slowthai opened up about the new album and premiered the brand new track ‘Gorgeous’. He also compared the new LP to a Sunday Roast and shared his love for John Lennon, and hate for Theresa May. 

When asked about the album, he responded: “I’m bringing you the real. It’s like a Sunday roast. Most people can’t even finish that meal. But here’s the gravy…I haven’t made bangers. I don’t want to be one of them with an album, I don’t want to make a mix tape. I could make bangers all day. It’s boring. I want to tell a story. It’s been done. And everyone sounds the same. This is sound, I’ll just try making it sound different with the help of my friends, we made it.” 

What should we expect from ‘Nothing Great About Britain’? “I think what you should expect is the unexpected. It’s interpretation, so it’s, however you take it, but there should be something on there that relates to people, or every person in the world. There’ll be something on there for everyone. I’m not saying every song is for everyone, but there’ll be a song that highlights and related to you.”
