Niall Horan, Anne-Marie On Their Charity Fleetwood Mac Cover
Niall Horan and Anne-Marie have spoken about their cover of Fleetwood Mac’s 1987 classic Everywhere, released last week to raise money for Children In Need. The single is available at https://lnk.to/Everywhere-CiN. A minimum of 50p from the sale of each download in the UK will benefit BBC Children in Need.
Speaking to Rebecca Rudd on Apple Music 1, Niall Horan revealed how the two singers ended up collaborating on the single: “We both got asked individually and when we both heard that each of us were doing it, we were well up for it. We had such a laugh the first time [with ‘Our Song’]. It was kind of a bit of a no-brainer for us. It was so funny, doing other promo and making a video and stuff we did for the first song. So yeah, it was a no-brainer for us. I mean, it’s a massive tune and it was good for us to get back together again.”
Anne-Marie went on to talk about the recording of the song: “It’s crazy to do a cover of a song. Because you know you’re always going to get cussed up. So, it’s quite a scary situation. But this song is so pure. The meaning of it, the lyrics, the whole point of us doing it at this time is purely because of the lyrics. And then also we have Ed Sheeran on guitar. We have Yungblud on bass. We have Sam Smith on backing vocals, Griff on percussion. Yeah, there’s a lot of special people on the track. Niall’s been saying this the whole time, Children In Need is such a huge thing for all of us, as artists, to be involved in. So, I think we all just… For Niall and I to be on a track again, after Our Song, was just a no-brainer. And then other people just seemed to want to be involved because of the whole cause.”
