Editors - Smokers Outside The Hospital Doors (Distance: The Acoustic Recordings)

Following on from Editors announcing their recent 'best of' album, set to commemorate their career spanning over 15 years, the band have today shared a gorgeous new version of 'Smokers Outside The Hospital Doors'. Set to feature on the deluxe edition the track breathes life in to their classic single, completely re-imagining its conception. Remembering the creation of the original, Smith explains: "I remember looking out the back of a van on tour somewhere in England, and saw a group of smokers outside a hospital. I wrote down the observation my notebook. Then later, coming to write songs, there were a few things going on in my life, people around me getting poorly - older people - for the first time. So a lot of the songs were fixated on mortality. And to have that title on this big, grand indie-rock song and have that land in the Top Ten, was interesting." Take a listen for yourselves below.
