Bastille collaborate with Alessia Cara on new version of 'Another Place'

After delivering their long-awaited new album 'Doom Days' earlier this year, Bastille have now shared a new version of one of the record's most memorable additions.

The new rework of 'Another Place' sees the band collaborate with Canadian singer Alessia Cara for the release, and adds that extra level of brevity to the original.

Speaking about their new offering, frontman Dan Smith said, “I’d always heard ‘Another Place’ as a duet and wanted it to be a story told from two perspectives. It’s not something we’ve ever done, outside of our mixtapes, but we are huge fans of Alessia’s – her voice and her songwriting are so distinct and brilliant – and we sent it to her to see if she’d be up for jumping on it with us. We love her verse and everything that she’s brought to the song – I think she really elevates it. We all got to spend some time together in her home town of Toronto recently, where she joined us on stage to sing ‘Another Place’ together for the first time, and where we shot the surrealist video for the song. It’s been really great to bring a new voice into the 'Doom Days' universe, and we’re so happy that Alessia was up for coming along with us for it.”

While Alessia Cara added, "I’ve been a Bastille fan since their early stuff so doing this song with them was genuinely so exciting. I met Dan last year and we got on really well. We talked about doing something together and he sent me the song a little while later. I loved the concept and thought it was both sonically and lyrically really great, as all Bastille stuff is. It all came together pretty naturally, and I can’t wait for people to hear it."
