Eight years after releasing their last single, “I’ve Got a Life,” the British music duo Eurythmics reunited to honor fellow Brits, The Beatles, with a special tribute performance!
The pair, made up of Annie Lennox and David A. Stewart, took the stage at Monday’s “The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute To The Beatles,” which celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Fabulous Four’s first appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show.”
When asked whether they were planning to release new music together anytime soon, the singers revealed they hadn’t discussed it.
“Well, we haven't talked about it because we were just coming to rehearse this Beatles thing,” shared Stewart. “We never say never.”
Lennox admitted they’d need a little liquid courage to discuss the possibility!
“We'll have a lot of alcohol, and then we'll get talking,” she said. “And someone will put some paper, saying, 'Will you sign it?' And then it says, 'in perpetuity.'"
Eurythmics hit it big in the ‘80s after their second album, “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This),” topped the charts in various countries. They split up in 1990 to pursue solo careers, but reunited to release new music in 1999 and 2005.
The pair admits they couldn’t pass up a chance to perform at a Beatles event, even though Lennox had said in 2008 that another reunion was unlikely.
“Well, the invitation is extraordinary, and it was just such a beautiful thing to do. It's like a once in a lifetime opportunity,” Lennox shared.
“How many times are you going to get asked to do something like the Beatles 50th reunion?” she continued. “I mean, come on, it was a no‑brainer.”
