Bombay Bicycle Club announce new EP with acoustic version of "Let You Go"

12 June 2020, 10:27 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Bombay Bicycle Club have announced their new EP Two Lives, and have shared an acoustic version of "Let You Go" as the lead single.

Two Lives will feature three acoustic versions of tracks from their Everything Else Has Gone Wrong album that landed in January, as well as a cover of Bonnie Raitt’s "Two Lives".

Bombay Bicycle Club have released the lead track from the EP - an acoustic reworking of "Let You Go".

Vocalist Jack Steadman says of the song, "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."

He adds of the EP, "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."

The EP will be available on the band's website on a pay-what-you-want basis, and the band will donate all proceeds to Chineke! and Youth Music - two organisations offering support for established Black and minority ethnic musicians and for young people in deprived areas.

"Let You Go" is out now. Bombay Bicycle Club's Two Lives EP is due for release on 24 July, and is available to pre-order now.
