So here we are again as Cher said in 1989. If you really do want to be distracted from the absolute state of things for 5 minutes (and who could blame you now we have the homegrown toe-curling embarrassment of Dominic Raab’s ‘Game of Thrones’ comments yesterday) can we suggest taking some time out dear reader to watch this clip which we leave you with this week of Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit. Isbell and his band performed an impassioned version of ‘Overseas’ earlier this week as part of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert’s ongoing #PlayAtHomeSeries. The song appears on Isbell’s most recent album, ‘Reunions’ which was released last month. Have a good one.
