Bombay Bicycle Club announce new EP 'Two Lives'

After returning earlier this year to deliver their long-awaited new studio album 'Everything Else Has Gone Wrong', Bombay Bicycle Club have now announced their plans for a new EP, arriving next month.

The new four-track collection 'Two Lives' will feature three acoustic renditions of songs from the band’s latest LP alongside a cover of Bonnie Raitt’s 'Two Lives', is being previewed by the new version of 'Let You Go', and is set to be released on the 24th July.

Speaking about the new release, the band's Jack Steadman said, “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.

“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.”

'Two Lives' will be made available to download on a ‘pay-what-you-want’ basis from the band’s website, with all proceeds going to two organisations: Chineke! (https://www.chineke.org), who create opportunities for established Black and minority ethnic musicians, nurtures new talent by providing role models, and celebrates diversity in classical music, and Youth Music (https://www.youthmusic.org.uk) who invest in music programs for young people in deprived areas, building confidence, resilience and self-esteem.
