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.
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.
