Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters, Chris Martin of Coldplay, Dua Lipa and a whole bunch more incredible international artists did a compilation of the tear-jerking Foo Fighters track, Times Like These.
Seeing how people all over the world are coming together to create hope in any way that they can during this pandemic is truly heart-warming – love conquers all.
Briefly.co.za saw the incredible rendition of Times Like These, and like many others, the goosebumps were real.
Dave Grohl, Coldplay’s Chris Martin, Ellie Goulding, Dua Lipa, Foo Fighters’ Taylor Hawkins, Rita Ora, 5 Seconds of Summer, Hailee Steinfeld, Royal Blood, Sean Paul, Rag’n’Bone Man, Sigrid, Biffy Clyro, Sam Fender, Bastille and Zara Larsson are just some of the insanely talented artists who joined in on this unforgettable collab cover.
The collaboration was arranged by BBC Radio 1 Stay Home Live Lounge in an attempt to try raise more funds for Covid-19 relief schemes, but most importantly to fill the world with hope.
Rita Ora told Rolling Stone that when she recorded her bit, it struck something inside her that she just couldn’t ignore. The track has a whole new meaning now because of this.
“While I was recording I found myself hearing the song in a whole new way and it just hit so differently with everything we are all experiencing. It really resonated with me on another level, and I feel a much deeper connection with it now. I hope everyone who listens feels the same.”
It is a truly moving track that hits home harder than it ever has. Music really is magical!
