“I love this song, and as soon as I heard it I was just reminded again of how much of a classic it is,” Smith said of the cover before its debut performance. “I’ve never actually seen Chris Martin perform this live, but I really want to, because I’ve fallen in love with this song after singing it.” Smith recalled that the months of lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic had found them at home, where they “really weirdly fallen in love with singing again. I’ve been singing so many different songs, songs that aren’t my own.”
