The 1975 – By Your Side
Thye won big at this year’s BRIT Awards, taking home ‘Best British Group’, and now The 1975 have released new single ‘By Your Side’, a cover of Sade’s classic ‘By Your Side’.
The atmospheric cover, which won’t appear on the band’s new album, is a new charity single benefiting the organisation War Child
“This song for me… if you listen to Kanye, if you listen to Bono… that song By Your Side has so much of that identity,” frontman Matt Healy said. “When I was listening to it, I was listening to it with this real sense of modernity thinking wow, this is still really forward thinking.
“When we were going to go a gig for War Child… the idea of doing it for charity meant the sentiment of the song took on a whole different meaning, and it felt perfect. It’s such a beautiful song.”
The 1975’s take on ‘By Your Side’ has been added to our Indie Daily Playlist – so give it a listen below.
