Bastille have announced they’re to release an extended version of their debut album Bad Blood.
The new version of the album – entitled All This Bad Blood – will include their debut album and a second disc that is divided into two parts.
The first half – All This Bad Blood – includes old and new songs that the band have recorded over the last few years and the second – Other People’s Heartache – features tracks from the band’s two mix tapes – Peoples Heartache Parts 1 and 2 – and also features two new recently recorded new tracks.
All This Bad Blood is released on November 25 and will be preceded by new single ‘Of the Night’, which is a ‘mash-up’ of Snap!’s 90’s hit ‘Rhythm is a Dancer’ and Corona’s ‘The Rhythm of the Night’.
Lead singer Dan Smith said of the single, ‘For the mix tapes we covered songs that we remember fondly and re-interpreted them from memory into something we’d want to hear now. I don’t think there’s any point in doing a cover unless you do something interesting with it, change it loads and put your own stamp on it. We had so much fun making those mix tape tracks – doing songs that no one would expect to hear from us and messing around with production. I hope that comes across.’
Bastille are currently on a sold-out UK tour and you can watch the video for their new single ‘Of the Night’ below:
