Marcus Mumford Covers ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ For Charity

On Friday, March 20th, Mumford & Sons frontman Marcus Mumford released a stripped-down piano cover of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “You’ll Never Walk Alone”.

The show tune was first featured in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s 1945 musical, Carousel, but has most recently become a British anthem of solidarity during the coronavirus outbreak.

The cover was posted for a good cause. Proceeds from the streams and downloads will aid The Grenfell Foundation and War Child UK. These two organizations aid vulnerable communities in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

John Legend Drops New Single

On Friday, March 20th, John Legend unveiled his latest single “Actions” and an accompanying lyric video that was posted on YouTube.

The record will be featured on The Voice judge’s forthcoming seventh studio album, which he confirmed earlier this week during his live-streamed “Together At Home” concert with wife Chrissy Teigen and kids Luna and Miles, and follows lead single “Conversations in the Dark.”

The untitled album is expected to drop some time later this year via Columbia Records.

On the grooving chorus, the lyrics read: “Actions speak louder than love songs.”

On the track, Legend reflects on the fact that nearly his entire discog is full of love songs. “La da da da da, here I go again/ With another love song that I wasted/ Just another love run out of patience/ She don’t want it/ She don’t need it/ Every other word coming from my pen/ She throw back in my face/ Saying ‘Where you been?’/ I sound so poetic/ But it feels like I let her slip away.”
