They originally performed the cover at Maida Vale for an Annie Mac session.

On what should have been Glastonbury week (sobs), Gengahr are officially releasing their cover of Kendrick Lamar’s ‘LOVE.’ that they originally showcased during a session for Annie Mac and Radio One at London’s Maida Vale, as an ode to the festival and Kendrick’s headline set.

“This week we would have been on our way to play Glastonbury festival for the third time,” Felix Bushe explains. “It’s home to some amazing memories for us as a band and it’s cancellation this year was the most painful of them all. A few months back we played this cover on Annie Mac’s R1 show and the response was so good that we ended up playing it again throughout the Sanctuary tour. Kendrick would have been the jewel in the Glastonbury crown this year so it seemed fitting that we record and release a studio version of the track to commemorate this lost moment in time.”
