Radio 1’s Live Lounge Month will return for another year/month in September. Meaning, once again, there’ll be a Live Lounge performance every fucking day. Yes, every single one! Not just every few days. Or when some pop star randomly appears in the studio. Or because some label gets all pushy about getting their stupid new artist playing their stupid new music live on the radio. No, it’ll be right there on the air every fucking day. Like I said.

Running from 2 Sep to 26 Sep, Live Lounge (nearly a) Month will see a stack of artists show up to perform one of their own songs and a cover during Clara Amfo’s 10am-1pm show. Among the list of performers signed up are Taylor Swift, Lana Del Rey and Sam Fender.

Says the station’s Head Of Music Chris Price: “The Radio 1 Live Lounge continues to set the global standard for live studio performance. Intimate and exposing, it’s still the best way to get close to your favourite artists, as well as discover new ones”.

“As every year”, he adds, “Live Lounge Month runs the gamut from internationally renowned superstars like Taylor Swift to emerging UK talent like Brit List alumnus Sam Fender. September is my favourite month of the year!”

Do you have a favourite month of the year? I’ve never really thought about it before. It’s probably July or August. Or maybe June. Summer’s good, isn’t it? Although I do have a soft spot for October.

I have a feeling Clara Amfo might be another September lover though, as she says: “From NYC, London to Liverpool, Live Lounge Month is back for another year and I couldn’t be happier about what the listeners have to look forward to in September!”

As well as being on the radio, all the performances will also be available in places where The Kids actually consume content these days.
