“Times Like These”, in a version for the charity
All proceeds from the song will go on to donate to the fight against the new Coronavirus. On the idea of the producer Fraser T Smith he spoke (via The Kerrang!):
Our vision was to create a version of the ‘stay at home’, using the telephones, pots and pans, pots, and guitar playing that will honor the quality and integrity of the artists and the music rather than the gimmicks of a studio recording, very expensive. We have tried to make this a single of a whole new way with art that is relevant to the present day. The lyrics especially resonate with all of us in these difficult times, and I sincerely hope that the money raised can help them in the fight, united the world against the COVID-19.
