Written by Zanda Wilson on March 24, 2020

Live-streaming is becoming an increasingly important way of connecting musicians and their fans during the coronavirus outbreak.

Artists are performing both their own tunes and those of others, and the latest to have a crack at live streaming some covers is James Blake.

Overnight he took to Instagram Live, after announcing “Ok looks like we’re in this for the long haul so I’m jumping in… gotta play for you guys somehow,” on Twitter.

As Consequence Of Sound points out, he then appeared in his living room and performed a stack of gorgeous covers, in true James Blake style.

The UK act performed ‘Godspeed’ by Frank Ocean, ‘No Surprises’ by Radiohead and ‘when the party’s over’ by Billie Eilish, as well as tunes by Joni Mitchell and Bill Withers.

Of course, Blake threw in some originals, playing ‘Retrograde’ and ‘Life Round Here’.
