Mystery Jets have announced plans to play a socially distanced live show in London’s Clapham Grand on 22nd December.
The performance will celebrate the release of lockdown album Home Protests, released today. The new LP sees Mystery Jets covering the likes of Joni Mitchell, Robert Wyatt and Randy Newman.
Home Protests came to fruition following frontman Blaine Harrison’s stint in hospital, which compromised the release date of recent album A Billion Heartbeats.
“When we had to take some time out after Blaine’s operation at the end of last year,” Mystery Jets have explain. “We got together each week to record a different cover of some of our favourite protest songs. Songs about mental health, the environment, consumerism or racial intolerance, which still feel as real now as they did when they were written.”
Who’d have thought we’d be getting the chance to go to a real gig this side of Christmas? Perhaps Santa does read our letters after all.
Tickets to catch Mystery Jets’ socially distanced show at The Grand are available here.
