Watch Loyle Carner Cover An ’80s Disco Classic For ‘Like A Version’

Written by Tom Williams on February 2, 2018

English rapper Loyle Carner has made his debut on triple j‘s Like A Version covers segment with a remake of an ’80s disco classic.

Currently in Australia to perform as part of Laneway Festival, Carner and his backing band hit up Like A Version with a fresh take on George Benson’s 1980 disco classic ‘Gimme The Night’, which they transformed into ‘Gimme The Mic’ with a new set of lyrics — including shoutouts to kangaroos, Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne (sorry to all the other cities).

While in the triple j studios, Carner also performed his original song ‘NO CD’, off his album Yesterday’s Gone. Watch both performances, below.

Aside from his performances at Laneway Festival, Carner is also scheduled to play a headline show in Melbourne on Tuesday, 6th February. Details here.
