LCD: ALL STAR COVER OF BEACH BOYS' "GOD ONLY KNOWS" FOR BBC MUSIC LAUNCH / COVER, DOWNLOAD


ALL STAR COVER OF BEACH BOYS' "GOD ONLY KNOWS" FOR BBC MUSIC LAUNCH / COVER, DOWNLOAD

I've been repeating this epic cover the whole day and I chose not to listen to its original version being quite satisfied with this one already :)

But how can a 1966 Beach Boys cover bring together 27 of the most iconic music artists to form what they would call the "Impossible Orchestra"? Watch the beautiful music video and download "God Only Knows" featuring the diverse talents of Elton John, Chris Martin, Lorde, Kylie Minogue, BBC Concert Orchestra, Dave Grohl, One Direction, and a whole lot more! 

Yes it's Chris Martin, Dave Grohl and Kylie Minogue in one song! Major like!






The amazing ensemble was used to formally (and with much grandness) launch BBC Music, which is their newest addition to the conglomerate. The music service is an unprecedented initiative that aims to help emerging talent and at the same time bring classical music to schools.

All proceeds from the song's release will also go to the charity "Children In Need"
