Black Rebel Motorcycle Club Offer Free EP ‘Let the Day Begin’ Ahead of New Album
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club’s new album ‘Specter at the Feast’ doesn’t drop until next month, but the band is treating fans to a free EP in advance of the disc. To download the set, simply visit blackrebelmotorcycleclub.com and enter your email address to join their mailing list. Moments later, the ‘Let The Day Begin’ EP will be in your email inbox.
The three-track collection features both a studio and live version of the title song, plus ‘Returning,’ another track bound for ‘Specter at the Feast.’
‘Let the Day Begin’ is a cover of a tune by the Call, the New Wave rock band formed in the early ’80s by BRMC frontman Robert Levon Been’s father Michael, who died while the group was recording ‘Specter.’ The elder Been served as the band’s touring soundman for much of the last decade, and they recorded the tune — the new album’s first single — as a tribute.
