Dave Bayley is keeping busy during self-isolation...

Glass Animals have shared a string of Quarantine covers.

The band are using lockdown productively, with frontman Dave Bayley shooting a series of covers.

Working from home, he's covered Nirvana, Lana Del Rey, and Bill Withers so far.

Alongside this, the group have unveiled a brand new open source website, an interactive project that will keep them close to fans.

"Isolation can drive us all crazy. But, at the same time, it could be quite healthy for people’s creativity. I find creating things helps me keep my head straight. All the frustration of being locked in can be released by making something."

"In the modern age where literally ANYTHING is possible, that canvas is sort of so blank it can be a black hole. So the main hurdle is often finding that initial piece of inspiration, that nugget that kicks off an idea and can be built on. Sometimes it’s a sound, sometimes it’s a graphic, sometimes it’s a photograph, or a tiny film clip…it’s usually some kind of raw-ish material that has the capacity to be transformed, re-imagined, twisted and reshaped into something else."

"This site will host all GA output in its rawest forms. Bits of code from our websites, drum/synth/sfx sounds I made for our songs, layered photoshop files from covers, 3D scans of stuff from around my house used in the latest artwork (including my own head) etc etc. Anyway - I hope it inspires someone to make something and I hope it gives someone an outlet for their confusion in this strange time.”
