BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge Allstars Release ‘Times Like These’ Charity Single

BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge series over the years has seen some of the biggest artists performance unique covers and special sessions. Now a number of huge names in music have come together to support charities fighting COVID-19 by covering Foo Fighters ‘Times Like These’ under the name of the Live Lounge Allstars.

The special Stay Home Live Lounge sees artists performing in their own homes and was produced by Fraser T. Smith. It features twenty-three musical names including the likes of Dua Lipa (who opens the track), Anne-Marie, Sigrid, Chris Martin, Mabel, Biffy Clyro, Foo Fighters, Bastille and many more. AJ Tracey also provides a phenomenal rap section for Live Lounge Allstars which is a standout moment of the track.

The single is currently in a chart battle with The Weeknd’s ‘Blinding Lights’ for the top spot on Friday. If the track was to reach number one it would see many of the artists achieving their first number-one single; including Foo Fighters.

Profits from the BBC Radio 1 Stay Home Live Lounge track will be split between BBC Children In Need and Comic Relief in order to provide essential support to those across the UK who have been significantly affected by the Coronavirus pandemic.

Unashamedly in love with pop music and boybands. I'm always looking for new artists to check out, so send them my way and you might be able to be smug knowing you helped me find a new favourite band. You'll probably say I have long hair, most people do.
