As we get deeper into this quarantine, it seems like bands are navigating towards covering classic rock acts in this time of international uncertainty. John Lennon has, of course, been the source of a lot of this energy over the last couple months — he memorably had that terrible star-studded “Imagine” cover that Gal Godot coordinated, and he’s also been covered more respectably by Dirty Projectors, Margo Price, Lennon Stella, and quite a few others.
