Garbage + Screaming Females Cover Patti Smith’s ‘Because the Night’ [Listen]
When Garbage and Screaming Females toured together last year, they teamed up to cover Patti Smith’s smash hit ‘Because the Night.’ They’ve even recorded a studio version of the track in honor of Record Store Day (April 20), and you can check it out via the clip above.
“This year we once again wanted to release something special in celebration of Record Store Day 2013,” wrote Garbage’s Shirley Manson on the band’s official site. “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.”
‘Because the Night’ – which will be released as a limited edition 10-inch vinyl record this Saturday – also features a brand-new Garbage tune, ‘Love Like Suicide,’ along with a remix of their 2012 single ‘Not Your Kind of People.’
