22 of Our Favourite Lockdown Covers


Are you bored at home? So are these artists…

As we enter the second month of stay-at-home measures due to the coronavirus pandemic, we’re missing gigs and live music more than ever. Thankfully, artists are just like us- bored, restless, and looking for their daily music fix.

Over the last few weeks, it’s been inspiring to see the outpouring of creative efforts from artists across the world – from livestreams, to fan interviews, to unlikely bedroom covers, artists have been keeping us sane and connected during these strange times we find ourselves in.
