Foo Fighters fans were feeling all the emotions after hearing a new cover of the band’s hit single Times Like These, featuring a host of famous names.
Coldplay star Chris Martin, Dua Lipa, Biffy Clyro and Rita Ora were among the celebrities taking part in the Stay At Home Live Lounge on Thursday (23 April), to raise money towards Covid-19 relief.
Recorded from their own homes, the artists teamed together to belt out the cover of Foo Fighters’ 2003 hit originally penned by Dave Grohl.
Fraser T Smith has produced the cover while Foo Fighters actually feature on the new rendition.
Among the other stars to lend their vocals to the charity single, include 5 Seconds of Summer, Bastille, AJ Tracey, Yungblud, Anne-Marie, Ellie Goulding, Paloma Faith, Jess Glynne and Sean Paul.
Foo Fighters said after the premiere: ‘Goosebumps. Fantastic work guys #StayHomeLiveLounge ‘Times Like These’, after all these years, has a new meaning for us all.’
After the track premiered on BBC’s Radio 1, listeners heaped praise on the number with one commenting: ‘Yep #timeslikethese #livelounge just made me teary.’
‘Someone tell me why I’m crying at the @BBCR1 live lounge omg amazing job guys, well done everyone,’ another weighed in.
‘#StayHomeLiveLounge worked so well, the production of it was so good considering it was done at everyones home, it all worked together. the song choice was perfect,’ a listener applauded.
In need of a tissue or two, another Foo Fighters fan said: ‘This is beautiful, my eyes are leaking.’
‘I would issue a mascara warning but on week 5 of lockdown you’re probably not wearing it anymore. What. a. Moment,’ another cried.
The full music video premiered Thursday (23 April) during The Big Night In on BBC On.
Proceeds from sales of Times Like These will be split equally between BBC Children In Need and Comic Relief to provide essential support to vulnerable people significantly impacted by the Covid-19 crisis across the UK.
