The Foo Fighters are getting a cover perfectly suited to the times.
BBC Radio 1 brought together talented musicians from all corners of entertainment for the #StayHomeLiveLounge special. Dave Grohl, Chris Martin, Dua Lipa, Hailee Steinfeld, Ellie Goulding and more delivered a truly special cover of the Foo Fighters’ “Times Like These”.
The cover is part of BBC’s “The Big Night In” special on Thursday night. It will also be released as a single to raise money for BBC Children in Need and Comic Relief and World Health Organization’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.
Talking to Variety about the single, producer Fraser T. Smith said, “We tried to make this single in a totally different way artistically, relevant to today. The lyrics particularly resonate with us all at this challenging time, and I sincerely hope that money raised can help the plight of the unified battle against COVID-19 around the world.”
Dua Lipa said, “I am so proud that we’ve been able to come together to record this track and I can’t wait for everyone to hear it. Thinking of everyone around the world at this difficult time. Love you all.”
