Last May, Scottish band Frightened Rabbit’s lead singer, Scott Hutchinson, passed away. One of the band’s signature albums, The Midnight Organ Fight turned 10 last year. The band wasn’t able to celebrate the album then, but this year will be putting a twist on the 10 year anniversary reissue.
On July 12th they will release Tiny Changes – A Celebration of The Midnight Organ Fight. The album will be a series of covers from artists the band has chosen to re-interpret the landmark classic Scottish breakup album.
There will be contributions from Craig Finn (The Hold Steady), Aaron Dessner (The National), Josh Ritter, Manchester Orchestra, Lauren Mayberry (CHVRCHES), Ben Gibbard (Death Cab For Cuties), The Twilight Sad, and apparently Sarah Silverman shows up on the album too.
You can pre-order the album right now….and listen to a couple covers of “The Modern Lover.” Side 1-track 1 on the record.
The first is by Scottish rockers Biffy Clyro.
The second is done by Julien Baker. The Tennessee performer is best known right now for her music with the group boygenius.
