SBTRKT has never covered a song live, but all that changed thanks to today’s Annie Mac R1 show. “It’s a track we love and thought we could try something different with” he said (what? no dramatic X factor style backstory?) and hinted that he’d supported the band on tour. It didn’t take long for Annie or us to guess it was Friendly Fires and a version of their Pala highlight, Blue Cassette. Listen to the cover – Sampha on vocals as per – and a live version of Hold On below.
