LYR (Land Yacht Regatta) is the project which involves British poet laureate Simon Armitage, musician Richard Walters and multi-instrumentalist Patrick Pearson. They announced the release of the debut album Call In The Crash Team which is out on June 26th via Mercury KX. We already shared “Never Good With Horses” and “33 1/3”.
Now they’re back with a new track titled “Lockdown“. It is a poem written in response to the current pandemic and a song recorded remotely and released in aid of Refuge. Featuring Pete Wareham of Melt Yourself Down on saxophone and British actress Florence Pugh, the video was shot in Bristol by Daniel Broadley.
