The shiny new single Tonight is ready to hit the shops on 12″, 7″ and digital download on 12th March.
The artwork follows in the grand tradition of the Specials’ Too Much Too Young EP. In fact, this picture was taken at a Specials gig too. See if you can spot who sang what (hope you’re enjoying this game — we are).
On the twelve inch, the first excellent mix comes courtesy of our ursine mates 2 Bears — a real beauty this, you’re going to love it — and the second is from Manchester’s own remix machine Club Clique. One of these days, we’ll have to head up to the north west for one of their legendary do’s. If they’ll have us.
Richard X has done an ‘old school’ (ie 1980s) extended mix of the song you already know and love.
And, as an added bonus, the 12″ features an unreleased track from the soundtrack of our Finisterre movie.
Manhattan is exclusive to the seven inch. We gave ourselves the task of taking one of Scott Walker’s latterday ‘difficult’ songs and tried to imagine how it might have sounded with a turn of the seventies Walkersound.
The EP and the 7″ are limited to 1,000 copies of each, will be available here
from Tuesday (6th March) at 5.00pm (GMT).
And remember kids, once they are gone, they are gone!
