Jarvis Cocker, Richard Hawley, John Grant & more covered Scott Walker @ Royal Albert Hall (listen)

John Grant, Jarvis Cocker, Susanne Sundfor and Richard Hawley @ Scott Walker Tribute (via BBC)

The BBC held a concert in celebration of the music of Scott Walker on Wednesday, July 25 at London’s Royal Albert Hall, as part of the annual Proms classical music festival. The event focused particularly on material from Walker’s first four solo albums following his departure from The Walker Brothers, released from 1967 to 1970. Jarvis Cocker, who has been to proms before and had Walker produce his band Pulp’s final album, performed four songs with the Heritage Orchestra: “Boy Child”, “Plastic Palace People”, “The War Is Over (Sleepers)” and “Little Things (That Keep Us Together).”
