More Info:

‘Lockdown’, featuring actress Florence Pugh and Pete Wareham of Melt Yourself Down, is a LYR setting of a poem by Poet Laureate Simon Armitage, written in response to the coronavirus restrictions. The track is in aid of Refuge: for each physical copy sold of this 7” Record Store Day edition in the UK, or accounted to Mercury KX in the UK, Mercury KX will donate £0.50 to Refuge (Registered Charity number 277424). The Locked Down version of ‘Never Good With Horses’ sees LYR rework their debut single with the help of string players Maddie Cutter and Will Harvey while isolated in various parts of the UK.
