The video – titled Live at the Conservatory – was uploaded onto Lim’s official YouTube channel on Thursday night (April 14). The four-track performance has also been released as a live EP on streaming platforms on Friday (April 15).
The video – and accompanying ‘Live at the Conservatory’ EP – consists of four songs: ‘Welcome Home’, ‘Least Of You’, What Can I Do’ and ‘Zero-Sum’. The performances see Lim and co. turn in playful new arrangements of the beloved tracks to masterful effect.

For the live performances, Lim enlisted the help of local musical heavyweights – and frequent collaborators – Chok Kerong on organ and keys, Soh Wen Ming on drums and Euntaek Kim on guitar and bass.
Charlie Lim said of the performance via a press release: “I hope that our audiences still remember us for what we do best. It’s been way too long since we could do a proper live show, so hopefully this will be a nice stopgap for everyone before we can start playing and touring again.”
Charlie Lim – who last released the single ‘Utopia Reimagined: Into Dreams’ in early February and featured on Singaporean rapper ABANGSAPAU’s ‘Boyhood’ in late January – is scheduled to hold a concert with his band the Mothership in September at the Esplanade Concert Hall with a number of rising musicians as part of the Esplanade’s year-long PopLore programming.
