Bastille have released their mash-up of TLC’s ‘No Scrubs’ and The xx’s ‘Angels’.
‘No Angels’ originally featured on the band’s mixtape series, ‘Other People’s Heartache p.t 2’, and will now appear on the 2 x CD format of the special 10th anniversary edition of debut album ‘Bad Blood’, ‘Bad Blood X’, due 14th July.
Dan Smith says: “When I started working on the songs that became “Bad Blood” 10 years ago at a laptop in my bedroom, I never imagined that they’d be heard by so many people and then take us all over the world. It’s really mad to think about.
“Ten years on, we wanted to put something special together to celebrate the album, whilst not messing with it too much. We had so much fun digging back through old artwork, photos and videos from that time to make a totally new package of artworks. My Dad even found an old CD-R of some of demos in the attic (that somehow people managed to pry out of my hands for a new 7” vinyl as part of this release – trust me… I didn’t think those versions would ever get heard). Putting all this together was such a nice way to step back into that world for a moment, and we really hope our fans feel the same way.”

As part of the anniversary celebrations, they will also perform as part of Kew The Music 2023 at London’s Kew Gardens on Tuesday, 11th July. The show will see the band perform their debut record in full, alongside some other favourites.
