The Live Lounge acts as a barometer of who’s who and who’s coming though, showcasing the biggest hits of the past year either as cover versions or unique performances of the artists’ own tracks.
With the 4th successful return of BBC Radio 1’s “Live Lounge Month” this September and a performance every day, this year’s album is stronger than ever!
The 11th volume in the successful series includes first appearances from this year’s breakthrough artists Lukas Graham and Shawn Mendes, alongside Live Lounge returning artists Coldplay, James Bay, Usher and Olly Murs. The biggest songs of the year feature, with Nick Jonas giving a new slant to ‘Lush Life’, The 1975 tackling Justin Bieber’s ‘Sorry’, Gorgon City taking on the hit of the year Drake’s ‘One Dance’ and of course Craig David’s amazing interpretation of Justin Bieber’s ‘Love Yourself’.
The first Live Lounge sessions started 15 years ago on Jo Whiley’s show, and they are still going strong today under the watchful eye of Clara Amfo, attracting the best acts in the world. The bands & artists perform their own track, and a cover version. The tracks are live and stripped down, showing the true quality of the musicianship and craft of the song. This is the ONLY place to get all these unique tracks in one place.
