Garbage and Screaming Females to Release Patti Smith Cover
Garbage, triumphant on the comeback trail, will play a sold out show at Manhattan’s Terminal 5 later this month, and will release a special collectible 10″ single on Record Store Day: a duet with Screaming Females, covering Patti Smith’s legendary “Because The Night.” The band wrote on Garbage.com: “This year we once again wanted to release something special in celebration of Record Store Day 2013. We decided to record the duet that we had been performing on tour with the Screaming Females towards the end of 2012. The SF flew across country from New Jersey to Los Angeles so we could record it all together at EastWest Studio 1 in Hollywood ; 2 drum kits, 2 bass rigs, 2 guitars, 2 microphones and 1 piano. No mean feat. The song? A cover of Patti Smith’s ‘Because the Night’ Why? Because it’s awesome.”
You’ll be able to buy the single at select stores on Record Store Day, April 20th. A fan-made remix of “Automatic Systematic Habit” and new song “Love Like Suicide” will be included. Watch Shirley Manson and Marissa Paternoster blister through their cover live, above.
