The cover is part of the couple’s “Sunday Lunch” video series, which started in 2020. So far on the series, the couple has shared songs from the Ramones, Nirvana, David Bowie, Metallica, Billy Idol, The Rolling Stones, Judas Priest, The Prodigy, Guns N’ Roses, Alice Cooper and many more via Willcox’s YouTube channel.

In the last few weeks they’ve been covering the Smashing Pumpkins’ ‘Bullet With Butterfly Wings’ and Neil Young’s ‘Rockin’ In The Free World’; On last week’s cover, the two presented their version of Green Day’s “Basket Case”.

For their re-imagining of ‘I Predict A Riot’ from the Leeds band’s 2005 debut album ‘Employment’, the pair head into the kitchen again, with a backdrop that includes a painting of a lighthouse next to the word ‘Hope’.

Fripp, wearing a blue vest, yellow tie, black stripe of eye make-up and hair styled in a small mohican, plays guitar on the left side of the screen while Willcox, wearing a black body suit, is behind a makeshift sings paper waves.

“This week’s Sunday lunch is truly a scoop – and we’re predicting a lot more than a riot!!” Willcox captioned the new video.

In August, Willcox released her 16th studio album “Posh Pop”, which she introduced with the single “Levitate” with Simon Darlow and Bobby Willcox.

Review of the album in an interview with NME, Willcox explained how it came about. “When COVID stopped everything last year, I was able to focus on writing and recording the next album,” she said. “We recorded in Simon’s outdoor studio with just him, my husband and me.

“‘Posh Pop’ was a magical experience, born out of a need and ability to connect with our fans in a heartfelt way. The frightening distance between those who rule the world and those on the ground also inspired my writing.

She added, “Working with Fripp in the studio the day before, we just gave him the chord charts and said, ‘We want you to come in and improvise and we’re going to use that.’ It was spontaneous.”

Meanwhile, King Crimson co-founder Ian McDonald, the multi-instrumentalist who also co-founded hard rock titans Foreigner, died last month at the age of 75.

According to a representative, McDonald “died peacefully at his home in New York City on February 9, 2022, surrounded by his family.” Officially, no cause of death is known.

McDonald’s death follows the recent deaths of fellow King Crimson members Gordon Haskell and Bill Rieflin.
