New Music: Twin Shadow – ‘Changes’

September 18, 2011

2010’s Forget by Twin Shadow was quite the album wasn’t it? To tide us over until the next full-length, old’ George Lewis Jr is gifting the world a track for free titled ‘Changes’.

‘Changes’ is his version of the track ‘Circus Is Gone’, originally written and recorded by 80s group Baggare. Here is his thinking about it taken from 4AD’s website:

Close to a year ago I discovered one of my favorite bands. Like most of my favorite bands I stumble on them accidentally while looking for rare music on youtube. The band was called Bagarre, some weird italo disco stuff with an asian/english singer, I was immediately drawn to a song called ‘Circus Is Gone’ and for fun the band started covering it while on tour. We were on our way out to play dates with Florence & The Machine in LA and I thought I would take two days with Twin Shadow keyboardist Wynne Bennett, to lock ourselves up in a studio, eat lots of good Mexican food and experiment with updating this great song. This is what we came up with. After working on the song I wanted someone with some pop chops to touch it, so we reached out to mixer Michael Brauer, who really took what we had done and instead of doing any major changes, just pumped life into it, and made it jump. They call it ‘Circus Is Gone’” I call it ‘Changes’.

So there you have it. The forthcoming Twin Shadow album should be out in the first half of next year through 4AD.
