Hear Blossoms Cover Harry Styles’ Global Hit “As It Was”

Blossoms covered Harry Styles’ hit song “As It Was.”

Stockport are the latest band to appear on Apple Music’s Home Session series, performing a new version of their track “The Sulking Poet” alongside Styles’ rendition.

Of their cover choice, Tom Ogden of Blossoms said, “A lot of people messaged us when it first came out saying it sounded like something we were going to write. I checked it out and kind of figured out what they meant with the synths and the riff. It’s a great track.

“We’ve always been big fans of simple covers that sound pretty similar to the original, I think we thrive on seeing how well we can recreate the sounds. We had a lot of 80s synths in our studio that sounded like they could have been on the disc, so it was fun to sift through the sounds to find the best match.

And addressing the new version of ‘The Sulking Poet’, Ogden added: “We’ve been wanting to do a stripped-down acoustic version of ‘The Sulking Poet’ for a while, so this was the perfect opportunity. We recently built a small studio/rehearsal space in our unit, so it was good to give it a little try.

“The past two years have made us all so much more grateful to do what we do for a living. After he was taken away from us, it made us sit down and take stock and reflect on our accomplishments and how much it was great in this group.

Apple Music’s Home Session series began during the first COVID lockdown in early 2020. Previous participating artists include Wet Leg, Romy, Sigrid, Griff, Mabel, Holly Humberstone, Craig David, FLO, Slowthai and many more .

Elsewhere, Mel C joined Blossoms on stage at Glastonbury Festival last month to cover The Spice Girls’ ‘Spice Up Your Life’.

Blossoms were playing The Other Stage when they were joined by the Spice Girl: “Since it’s technically the 50th anniversary, we thought we’d do something a little special,” Ogden said. “Do we have any Spice Girls fans in the house? OK, would you please welcome Melanie C aka Sporty Spice to the stage.
