Bombay Bicycle Club & Lucy Rose - Willow

(Credit: Tom Oxley)

Following on from last month's surprise of a brand spanking new EP entitled Fantasies, released 23rd February via Mmm… Records / AWAL, Bombay Bicycle Club have this week returned with the second track to be lifted from the release. Joining up with long time collaborator and friend Lucy Rose, the latest track Willow sees their first work together in almost 10 years. The band says: "When we decided to hold ‘Fantasneeze’ back for its own release after the album, we kept working and finished off three other songs in short order. We think of this as a Bombay & Friends release because each song has a good friend of the band singing on it (Lucy Rose, Rae Morris, Liz Lawrence, Matilda Mann). Some are old friends with long-term, close associations to the band (Lucy Rose for instance) while Matilda Mann is a newer collaborator (having contacted Jack to do some co-writing initially a couple years ago). It’s also very much a continuation of My Big Day as it was recorded around the same time and mixed by Dave Fridmann". Take a listen for yourselves below.
