Watch Jamiroquai Turn David Bowie’s ‘Let’s Dance’ Into A Coronavirus Anthem

As coronavirus continues to dominate the media and musicians get creative in isolation, many are beginning to rework songs with new, up-to-date lyrics.

One such is Jay Kay, frontman for classic ’90s act Jamiroquai, who has put his own COVID-19 spin on a David Bowie ’80s staple.

Kay has reworked the lyrics to Bowie’s ‘Let’s Dance’ for a tune he’s called ‘Lockdown’.

His vocals are just as good as ever, as he sings; “Lockdown, put on your face mask and watch TV… Lockdown, to the sound of the kids all screaming at me.”

The gold keeps on coming, as he gets towards the bridge; “And if you dry cough, I’ll run from you. A fever so high with diarrhoea.

“You know this viral flu is trying to kill you too. If you should run under a bus it is because you’re bored.”

Check out the full track below, and stay tuned for a big footwear reveal at the end:

Plenty of other musicians are using the time to perform covers and new music, with the latest edition of Aussie live streaming festival ISOL-AID taking place over the weekend featuring Alex Lahey, Middle Kids and more.

The same goes for artists in the US, several of whom teamed up for the Elton John-hosted ‘iHeart Living Room Concert For America’, where Dave Grohl, Billie Joe Armstrong and more performed from their living rooms.
