LISTEN: Ed Nash & Liz Lawrence - 'Mad World'

I should most certainly be asleep by now - a few days back at work (Christmas in retail, send help!) and every muscle in my body aches permanently. Turns out spending most of the day at work dramatically reduces time to listen to submissions and write posts so here I am, far too late in the day, as I haven't scheduled anything for Friday. It's a hasty post (so less rambling, sort of) but a really lovely track from Ed Nash (of Bombay Bicycle Club). The latest offering of his new solo project, this time, featuring his Bombay touring pal Liz Lawrence. They've partnered up for a cover of Mad World and it's really really lovely. A joyous pairing. Happy listening!!! And a quote from Ed...

Me and good pal Liz Lawrence have recorded a cover of our favourite Christmas number one Mad World... actually the only Christmas number one it seemed fitting to cover after the year that we've all been through. 

We’ve made the song a pay-what-you-want download on my Bandcamp and we've included a donation link on Spotify, with all the proceeds going to the Samaritans, a charity that provides emotional support to anyone struggling to cope. It's been a hard year for everyone and this organisation seems more vital now than ever. 

Hoping that everyone is staying safe and happy, whatever your situation this festive season. More to come in the new year but until then I hope this can bring even a tiny bit of joy.
