A companion album to Sara Cox’s Radio 2 Sounds of the 80s show, which is broadcast every Friday night from 10pm – midnight, the previously unreleased tracks were handchosen by each artist, who has given their own honest and stripped back take on the song and truly made it their own. Highlights include James Bay singing Bruce Springsteen’s ‘I’m On Fire’, Foxes take on Chaka Khan’s ‘Ain’t Nobody’, Leona Lewis with Cyndi Lauper’s ‘Time After Time’, Guy Garvey’s version of David Bowie’s ‘Let’s Dance’ and The Waterboys covering Prince’s ‘Purple Rain’
