Frightened Rabbit to celebrate 10 years of The Midnight Organ Fight with covers record

17 June 2019, 15:03 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

To celebrate 10 years of The Midnight Organ Fight, Frightened Rabbit will release a covers version of the record created by close friends and collaborators of the band.

News of the covers version of the record arrives shortly after the band launched new charity Tiny Changes in memory of their former frontman Scott Hutchison.

Today they've announced a new cover album of their second record, The Midnight Organ Fight.

The band released a statement alongside the announcement, "To celebrate the 10 year anniversary/birthday of The Midnight Organ Fight we wanted to avoid the usual approach of just repressing the vinyl, or rereleasing the same record with different artwork or putting out demos that were never meant to be heard by anyone other than the band and maybe our parents. We came up with the idea of asking some pals to record their own interpretations of the songs on the album. It felt like a good way to celebrate everyone who had been a part of the last ten years of the band and we didn't have to do any work ourselves! Every single person on Tiny Changes has been a part of our lives and Frightened Rabbit in a special way over the last ten years. We've shared studios, vans, bars, dressing rooms and probably even underwear with some of these people and that's why this record is so special to us."

The band adds, "Scott was a vital part of bringing this album together and it's something he was very excited about and worked hard to bring to life. He listened to and approved every track on there with us and he had already started preparing the artwork which you'll see on there (if you buy it). This is a celebration of a record that connected thousands of people to Scott and connected thousands of people to each other and ten years on it is still managing to do it. Scott would probably have put in some joke here about when the album hits puberty and starts rebelling by smoking weed and getting things pierced. We're not that funny so instead let's just raise a glass, blow out the candles and make a wish."

Frightened Rabbit's Tiny Changes covers album will be released 12 July. Find out more about the charity over on
