Bombay Bicycle Club have announced a new acoustic EP ‘Two Lives’ out in July + unveil a new version of ‘Let You Go’

The four track collection features three tracks from their recent album ‘Everything Else Has Gone Wrong’

Bombay Bicycle Club have announced details of a brand new acoustic EP ‘Two Lives’

Set for release on July 24th, the four track EP will feature acoustic ‘reworkings’ of three tracks from their latest album ‘Everything Else Has Gone Wrong’ – with new spins on ‘Racing Stripes’, ‘Is It Real’ and ‘Let You Go’

The latter has been revealed today as a taste of what to expect from the collection, which also features a cover of Bonnie Raitt’s ‘Two Lives’

Speaking about the ‘Two Lives’ EP, Jack Steadman from the band says: “Recording this EP at home meant going back to basics and recording just like I used to growing up. It brought back a lot of funny memories of making DIY shakers out of rice and tupperware, and mic shields out of coat hangers and stockings.”

On ‘Let You Go’: “It was great to record Let You Go in a stripped back way for it, letting the song shine through without any fancy production. That minimalism combines with the rough around the edges recording – chair squeaks and all – to give you a more intimate experience.”

The ‘Two Lives’ EP will be made available to download through a ‘pay-what-you-want’ scheme on the band’s website, with all proceeds going towards the work of Chineke! (an organisation focused on creating opportunities for black and minority ethnic musicians through mentorship and more) as well as Youth Music (an organisation investing in music programmes for young people in deprived communities)
