Watch MTV Unplugged: Bastille Thurs 23rd November On MTV!
"We are so excited about this show, it’s going to be completely unlike anything we’ve done before, and something that the fans will, we hope, adore."
Filmed in front of an intimate audience at London's Porchester Hall, the Grammy-nominated band's special features them performing stripped-back renditions of fan favourites including 'Pompeii', 'Happier', 'Daniel In The Den', plus a cover of Roberta Flack's classic 'Killing Me Softly' and a performance of the title track of their forthcoming album Give Me The Future and more.
Bastille said: “We are all ridiculously excited to have been asked to play a show for MTV Unplugged. There are so many legendary, classic Unplugged sets that we love by The Cure, Nirvana and Pearl Jam, and it’s an honour to be asked to follow in the footsteps of all these sensational musicians who we’ve all looked up to for ages.
“We love the challenge of rearranging our music and having just made an album that’s much more electronic, the idea of going entirely in the opposite direction for a show like this was really appealing. We are so excited about this show, it’s going to be completely unlike anything we’ve done before, and something that the fans will, we hope, adore.”
We know they will!
Watch MTV Unplugged: Bastille, Thursday 23rd December at 9pm on MTV UK.
