Today we have something quite special for you, it’s Nick Littlemore’s (PNAU, Empire Of The Sun) take on Birds Of Tokyo’s single ‘I’d Go With You Anywhere’ and it’s all sorts of bizarre.
It’s a cut from an upcoming Birds Of Tokyo album Released November 6, the album will feature songs from their career spanning over a decade.
The idea for Playlist record actually began last year when the band was based in the U.S. and starting to introduce themselves to a new audience over there.
“It was a bit weird”, explains guitarist Adam Spark. “After making music for ages we were suddenly doing interviews for the “new faces” sections of magazines again. We needed to give American music industry people a quick sense of what the band was all about so we created a playlist that had a couple of key tracks off each album.”
Drummer Adam Weston adds, “After we first put it together on Soundcloud we listened back to the whole thing and we were actually kinda surprised. It was like we’d gone for a long walk and when we eventually paused to look back we realized we’d travelled a lot further than we thought.”
The band also soon realized that plenty of people back home might only have paid attention to one small part of that journey so it made sense to make their private U.S. playlist available to everyone in case they wanted to explore the band in a bit more depth. To celebrate it release, the guys will also be hitting the road – tour dates below.
