“These past few weeks have been more than challenging for us all confined at home so i thought it would help to ask some of my friends, artists, to send me their words so I can read them in this episode.”

Among others to have contributed messages are IDLES, Karen O, Fontaines D.C., Ezra Furman and Queens Of The Stone Age.

Beth has spent recent months embarking on her solo recording career, after her band Savages announced at the end of 2016 that they were “going to take a break”.

Yesterday (April 17) she shared a pummelling new single ‘Innocence’, and announced that the release of her debut solo album ‘To Love Is To Live’ will be delayed from May 8 to June 12.

In February, meanwhile, she launched a TV chat show, with the first episode also featuring IDLES as well as Primal Scream.
