Coldplay singer-songwriter Chris Martin performed an acoustic rendition of “Shelter From the Storm” by Bob Dylan as a guest on the first Saturday Night Live At Home episode.
With “Entrance to Trains” displayed on poster boards behind him — a nod to SNL’s Grand Central Station-themed studio stage — Martin performed his own version of the Blood on the Tracks classic, a song he chose given the orders of social distancing and “stay home” against COVID-19 outbreak.
Chris Martin was one of the artists who participated in the Together, At Home: WHO-Global Citizen Solidarity Sessions, and performed acoustic versions of Coldplay songs and partially covered “Life on Mars?” by David Bowie.
“Maybe 9/11 was the last time I felt like we were all together,” Martin said of how the outbreak unified people.
Dylan, on the other hand, released his 17-minute epic “Murder Most Foul,” adding, “Stay safe, stay observant, and may God be with you.”
