Beth Ditto has revealed that the Gossip cover Fleetwood Mac‘s “The Chain” before shows to get them in the mood for their onstage party.
In an interview with www.uncut.co.uk as part of our Latitude Festival Countdown, Ditto told us: “We usually play “The Chain” by Fleetwood Mac to get everybody in. That’s always good. That’s Hannah’s [Billie, drummer] choice. It’s her No.1 pumped-up jam.”
Ditto also promises that the Gossip, whose new album Music For Men is released this week, will “have some tricks up [their] sleeves” with regards to surprise cover versions during their headline set in the Uncut Arena at Latitude on the final night (July 19). Previous live covers have included Wham and Heaven 17.
Ditto has some great tips on festival essentials too, to find out what they are, see the full Latitude interview with Beth Ditto, here.
