Today (September 29), Willow put her own spin on ‘The Funeral’ as part of a two-track set for this year’s Live Lounge Month. She transformed the gritty pop-punk anthem into a laid-back acoustic number.
“I just love the lyrics; I love just the vibe that he’s giving on this song,” Willow explained of her decision to cover the single.
“It feels very like Billy Idol to me. I just love the vibe that [Yungblud] has. And I learned it on acoustic guitar a few months ago and was just like, ‘I really love that song, so why not do that’.”
The musician continued: “I had to bring out the upright bass, y’know… give it a different vibe. Doing it in such a different way… it just fills my heart. I’m so happy.”
Additionally, Willow treated listeners to a live airing of ‘Curious/Furious’ from her fifth album ‘Coping Mechanism’, which is out next Friday (October 7). Watch both performances above, or listen to the full programme on-demand via BBC Sounds.
