Two Door Cinema Club share charity cover of John Lennon's 'Isolation'


Two Door Cinema Club have shared their delightful cover of John Lennon’s ‘Isolation’ in an effort to raise funds for Ireland’s leading social justice charity, Extern.

Frontman Alex Trimble recorded a cover of the John Lennon classic at his makeshift home studio. The track originally featured on Lennon’s 1970 debut solo album John Lennon / Plastic Ono Band and has been covered by a host of names such as Johnny Depp and Jeff Beck as well as Sonic Youth’s Lee Ranaldo during this current strange period of self-isolation.

All proceeds from the release will go to support Extern, Ireland’s leading social justice charity which each year enables over 20,000 people to change their lives. Money raised will help Extern to continue to be able to care for people and families who are isolated or vulnerable during these challenging times and in the months ahead.

Speaking of the band’s connection to the charity, bassist Kevin Baird said: “In October 2019 I had the pleasure of visiting the Extern offices in Belfast, just a few hours before our show at The Telegraph Building. I’ve been in awe of their tremendous work ever since, in particular the life saving administering of naloxone to those in the grips of an opioid overdose.

Baird added: “Extern work so hard to protect and provide for anyone who need it in Ireland, north and south. They literally save lives and so much more.”
