In recent times BBC Radio 1 has brought forth a concept called ‘Live Lounge Allstars.’ This bringing lots of artists together who are all staying at home and social distancing properly during these trying times. 

This whole concept is a charity single and using 23 truly big-name artists right now, the Live Lounge Allstars have covered a Foo Fighters Song that really hits home right now. After it was first posted this song went viral quickly and with good reason, it is truly something else. If you already loved the song ‘Times Like These’ you’ll likely really enjoy this take on it. 

BBC Radio 1 Vevo wrote as follows about the single on their YouTube:

The BBC has released Times Like These (BBC Radio 1 Stay Home Live Lounge) as a single, with UK proceeds to be combined with any funds raised by The Big Night In. These funds will be split equally between BBC Children in Need and Comic Relief to provide essential support to vulnerable people of all ages and backgrounds across the UK who will be significantly impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.

As you can see, there are truly some huge names that worked on this and all from their homes. Right now we all need to come together as best we can. Sure, we are stuck at home, but we should still help one another out. Life might seem like a lot right now and you might feel like nothing is as it should be but in time we will get back to normal. 

Your safety matters and staying home right now as much as possible is extremely important. COVID-19 is a serious issue and is something we will be battling for likely a good while longer. Right now, in times like these, as the Foo Fighters have said time and time again ‘it’s times like these you give and give again.’ We all need to make sure the people in our lives also have the things they need. Giving is important, and we need to be willing to give now more than ever.
