Blossoms are releasing an album of their ‘Isolation Covers’

The band has been sharing live covers with fans during the coronavirus lockdown

Blossoms have announced they’re releasing an album of their ‘Isolation Covers’, after sharing their own take on a series of tracks during the coronavirus lockdown.

The ‘Foolish Loving Spaces‘ band have been sharing live covers with fans during the coronavirus lockdown and will now release an album of their renditions of songs from Frank Ocean, The Coral, Tame Impala and more.

Sharing their tracklist on Twitter, the band said: “We’re pleased to announce that we’ll be releasing our recent isolation covers, including tracks with @JamesSkellyBand (@thecoralband) & @MilesKaneMusic, over the next few weeks starting with our Frank Ocean cover ‘Lost’ available to from midnight tonight [May 3]”

They added: “There’s also a few more that we’re currently working on. Release dates still to be confirmed but keep your eye out for those. All of these tracks will make up our ‘Blossoms In Isolation’ album which will also be available later in the year on CD & vinyl.”

This comes after the band shared a video of how they recorded ‘Lost’ last month.

It was recorded by bringing together video and audio clips of each member of the band performing their respective parts — albeit while abiding by the strict self-isolation measures that are being imposed during the current coronavirus lockdown.

Taking on the ‘Channel Orange’ track, the below clip of the cover shows how each bandmember recorded their part at home. Drummer Joe Donovan is seen improvising to supply his percussion, utilising a snare drum, a crate of beer and some scissors to provide the necessary sound effects.
