Garbage to cover ‘Because The Night’ for Record Store Day #RSD13

Garbage to cover ‘Because The Night’ for Record Store Day #RSD13

It’s Record Store Day on Saturday 20 April, which celebrates independent record shop (not that there are many chains left). On the day itself various limited edition vinyl and CD are released, as well as plenty of live music.

Garbage have announced they will be releasing a limited edition 10″ vinyl featuring a cover of Patti Smith’s ‘Because The Night‘, which they recorded with Screaming Females. In their own words:

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.

We love ‘Because The Night’ by Patti Smith and can’t wait to hear Garbage and SF’s version of the track. Stay tuned.

The 10″ will also include a remix by Beatport contest winner Konstantin Kazhev titled “Automatic Systematic Habit Costa Cadeu Remix” and an additional Garbage original song titled “Love Like Suicide”.
