Who was the young woman performing that sultry version of Don’t Stop Me Now on Doctor Who on Saturday night?
It was Foxes, real name Louisa Rose Allen, the Grammy-award winning singer better known for the “experimental pop” of recent singles like Let Go For Tonight and Holding Onto Heaven. But In Mummy on the Orient Express she made the Queen classic her own with a ’20s jazz take onboard a train hurtling through space.
“I really love the song and I loved the idea of a stripping it back and doing a jazz version,” says Foxes. “I don’t think anyone’s done that before.”
The BBC have just released this absolutely incredible, very blue music video featuring the full song. If the corporation can cover the Beach Boys, surely this can get released as a single? We want it on our iPods. Now.
