Today marks the release of the new single from The Big Pink, 'Tonight'. A brand new recording of a track that appears in a different form on their debut album, A Brief History Of Love, it’s available now on both 7" and download. It comes backed by 'Sweet Dreams', an unlikely Beyonce cover that has become a staple in their live set, and the 7” is packed in a poster sleeve as designed by Eddie Quarmby.
The band have finally returned from a successful tour of the States, which culminated in six weeks hard touring and them closing off proceedings at Coachella Festival. They’re due on the road next when they tour the UK in May for their first headline tour of the year…
