Earlier this month, Bushell joined Tom Morello, Julien Baker and more for a charity single, ‘God Help Us All’.

The musicians teamed up with The Miraculous Love Kids, a non-profit organisation that teaches music to young Afghan girls, to cover Morello’s Nightwatchmen song.


Meanwhile, Bushell recently said she wants to jam with Billie Eilish and become Prime Minister of Great Britain.


Last year, she released an original song titled ‘The Children Will Rise Up!’, which Bushell recorded with Tom Morello’s son Roman. She, Roman and the iconic Rage Against The Machine guitarist had jammed together a month earlier.

Other collaborations that Bushell’s been a part of include team-ups with Queen’s Roger TaylorBeatles icon Ringo Starr and the Arctic Monkeys’ Matt Helders (who she also interviewed), as well as a live performance in LA with the Foo Fighters.

She said the latter experience made for “the best night of [her] entire life”, while Dave Grohl said that watching her play the drums was “the true meaning of rock’n’roll”.
