Bombay Bicycle Club have released their new acoustic EP, ‘Two Lives’.
The four-track EP will feature acoustic ‘reworkings’ of three tracks from their latest album ‘Everything Else Has Gone Wrong’ – ‘Racing Stripes’, ‘Is It Real’ and ‘Let You Go’ – plus this new ‘un, a cover of Bonnie Raitt’s ‘Two Lives’
Drummer Suren de Saram explains: “Today we’re releasing the fourth and final track from our Two Lives EP. This one is an acoustic version of Is It Real from the last album, and features the wonderful Billie Marten on vocals.
“As with the whole EP, this song was recorded during lockdown with everyone recording their parts remotely. It was a result of us trying to adjust to a suddenly empty diary, and struggling to come to terms with everything that was going on in the world.”
The ‘Two Lives’ EP is 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).
