Dan Smith of Bastille Performs Four Songs on Together At Home
- Dan Smith of British alt-tock band Bastille performed on Together At Home via Instagram Streaming Live on March 22nd.
He had a really important message for listeners in the UK to help support the NHS by being conscious about social distancing.
“It’s so important that we stay apart... [I] know it’s really hard,” Dan Smith said. He added a shout-out thanking the doctors and nurses working through the pandemic.
He performed “Pompeii”, “Jolene”, “World Gone Mad” and “Killing Me Softly With His Song”.
“Pompeii” was released as the fourth single from the band's debut album “Bad Blood” in 2013. The song became the eleventh best selling song that year and until June 2014 in the UK.
“Jolene” is the first single of Dolly Parton's 1974 album of the same name. Dan Smith sang "wash your hands and stay at home" in the song lyrics.
“World Gone Mad” was contributed by Bastille to the Netflix 2017's film “Bright” directed by David Ayer, starring Will Smith and Joel Edgerton.
The last track of performance, “Killing Me Softly With His Song” was released by American singer-songwriter Roberta Flack in 1973. The song won the 1974 Grammy Award for Record of the Year.
