Glass Animals share covers of Nirvana and Lana Del Rey as part of 'Quarantine Covers'

While the current quarantine measures have seen musical artists stretch their creativity further than ever these last few weeks, Glass Animals are managing to keep their fans entertained with a series of cover songs.

Dubbed the 'Quarantine Covers', the band have unveiled their versions of Nirvana's 'Heart Shaped Box' and Lana Del Rey's 'Young & Beautiful' to kick off the series, with many more expected in the coming weeks.

They have also launched a new website Open Source website, where they have shared layered artwork, a special set of audio stems, samples and various other materials (including unseen photos, videos and GIF’s) which are available to download. From there, fans will be able to build their own music, Instagram lenses, animated videos, illustrations, alternative artwork, GIF’s, 3D videos and remixes – all using the tools that the band will provide.

Speaking about their new site, frontman Dave Bailey said, "Isolation can drive us all crazy. But, at the same time, it could be quite healthy for people’s creativity. I find creating things helps me keep my head straight. All the frustration of being locked in can be released by making something. In the modern age where literally ANYTHING is possible, that canvas is sort of so blank it can be a black hole. So the main hurdle is often finding that initial piece of inspiration, that nugget that kicks off an idea and can be built on. Sometimes it’s a sound, sometimes it’s a graphic, sometimes it’s a photograph, or a tiny film clip…it’s usually some kind of raw-ish material that has the capacity to be transformed, re-imagined, twisted and reshaped into something else. This site will host all GA output in its rawest forms. Bits of code from our websites, drum/synth/sfx sounds I made for our songs, layered photoshop files from covers, 3D scans of stuff from around my house used in the latest artwork (including my own head) etc etc. Anyway - I hope it inspires someone to make something and I hope it gives someone an outlet for their confusion in this strange time.”
