Having brought the house down at their sold out Alexandra Palace homecoming gig last month, Bombay Bicycle Club are proud to announce the release of ‘Beg’, which is to be the last single released from ‘A Different Kind of Fix’, on July 9th.
The release of ‘Beg’ as a single is unique in that the song wasn’t actually featured on the original physical version of the album but as a bonus track on the digital album release. The band recently added the song to their live set and had an amazing response from fans, so decided to release it as their final single from this campaign. The news also comes after their recently announced and hotly tipped appearance at the BBC Hackney Weekend towards the end of June.
‘Beg’ was Zane’s Hottest Record last night on R1. You can listen to the track on the following official YouTube link:
To celebrate the release of ‘Beg’ as the final single from the album, the band commissioned a remix by the American superstar disco production guru, Tom Moulton. The world-renowned record producer, whose previous collaborations include disco giants Gloria Gaynor and Grace Jones is known as the ‘King of Disco’. Moulton is widely credited as being the producer who invented the ‘Disco Mix’.
2012 has already been a whirlwind year for the quartet North London band who on top of selling out one of the biggest venues in London have: toured Australia with Elbow, been nominated for three NME awards and embarked on a headline tour across North America with two more trips across the pond scheduled for later this year.
