Bombay Bicycle Club's Ed Nash collaborates with Liz Lawrence on cover of 'Mad World'

Having spent the last few months releasing a string of impressive solo singles including ‘Say Anything’, ‘When’ and ‘Think You Feel The Same’, Bombay Bicycle Club's Ed Nash is back with a rather special offering.

The new cover of the classic Tears For Fears anthem 'Mad World' sees him team up with the incredible Liz Lawrence for the release, and is being unveiled on Bandcamp with all proceeds going to emotional support charity Samaritans.

Speaking about the new single, he said, "Me and good pal Liz Lawrence have recorded a cover of our favourite Christmas number one Mad World... actually the only Christmas number one it seemed fitting to cover after the year that we've all been through.

"We’ve made the song a pay-what-you-want download on my Bandcamp and we've included a donation link on Spotify, with all the proceeds going to the Samaritans, a charity that provides emotional support to anyone struggling to cope. It's been a hard year for everyone and this organisation seems more vital now than ever.

"Hoping that everyone is staying safe and happy, whatever your situation this festive season. More to come in the new year but until then I hope this can bring even a tiny bit of joy."
