Glasgow based Indie rock band The Fratellis released a three-track single today, “Let’s Go!” The single includes the new song “Let’s Go!” and acoustic versions of album tracks “Laughing Gas” and “Stand Up Tragedy.”
Here is what Jon Fratelli had to say about “Let’s Go!”
“‘Let’s Go!’ was half recorded when we did the main album sessions but we ran out of time to finish it so it was completed in Glasgow. It didn’t really suit the tone of the album but stood out on it’s own as being quite good fun, it’s what I like to call a ‘Kitchen Sink Song’ in that it’s the kind of track where you throw everything but the kitchen sink into the mix… Everything in the track is effect-heavy in a way that sets it apart from most of the other songs we’ve produced, I’m really glad that it’s going to be available for everyone to enjoy.
“The alternate versions of ‘Stand Up Tragedy’ and ‘Laughing Gas’ give these songs room to breathe a little more than the album versions, “Laughing Gas” especially in this context has some more space to deliver its message, so much so that we adopted a similar version with piano, guitar and vocals at a much slower pace in our live shows, certain songs come alive in a very different way with this approach and can connect more quickly and with less distraction.”
