Yorkshire’s hotly tipped trio Bang Bang Romeo release the official video for their new single ‘What’s Up?’.

The track is a cover of the 90’s anthem penned by iconic fellow LGBTQ songwriter Linda Perry and made famous by her band 4 Non Blondes.

Perry has also penned hits for Gwen Stefani, Adele and P!nk, – the latter whom Bang Bang Romeo will join on her sold-out stadium tour which starts June 16.

Listen to ‘What’s Up?’ by Bang Bang Romeo on the Shoot Music New Releases playlist on Spotify.

Comments Bang Bang Romeo front woman Stars: “In 2019, I live in a world where if I travel to certain countries as an openly gay woman, I face jail time, I face dehumanisation and possibly death.

“Add on top of that, there are middle class, middle aged white men in suits telling me that if I accidentally fall pregnant, even if it was via rape, I am legally bound to still give birth? What I’m trying to say is… ITS TWO THOUSAND AND NINETEEN! Linda Perry wrote this anthem back in 1992 because she genuinely asked the world and it’s times, ‘What’s Going On?!’

“We’ve re-released it with her blessing, because 25 years later, I’m here, still asking the same f**king questions. To my LBGTQ family and my strong female sisters, this ones for you.”
