Meadowlark / Share Francis and the Lights Cover, UK Tour Concludes This Week

Meadowlark small square

Meadowlark have unveiled a stripped back cover version of ‘May I Have This Dance’ originally by Francis and the Lights, and the track is available to stream on all digital platforms now.

Speaking about the choice of cover, lead vocalist from the band, Kate McGill, explains: “We were keen to take a track and totally change it, create a version of a song that no one would expect. We both absolutely love Francis & The Lights, his songwriting nods to a past era of music that we adore. May I Have This Dance felt like the perfect song to strip apart and work up from the bare bones, digging through the busy synthetic layers to find the emotional core of the track and exploit it in our own stripped back way.”

In September, Meadowlark released a provocative video for their current single ‘Sunlight’. Directed by Meadowlark’s own Dan Broadley (who alongside playing in the band has produced videos for the likes of Don Broco, Lower Than Atlantis, Mallory Knox, as well as the majority of Meadowlark’s catalogue), the video features two men in Y-fronts and Donald Trump masks making out. But rather than aimlessly smearing America or its president, the video is a satirical look at prejudice.

Watch the ‘Sunlight’ video on YouTube HERE and watch Meadowlark perform a stripped back live version of the track on YouTube HERE.

‘Sunlight’ is taken from Meadowlark’s debut album ‘Postcards’ which is out now on AllPoints. Listen to the album in full HERE.
