Bombay Bicycle Club share alternative version of 'Racing Stripes'

With the band set to release a new EP of reworked and stripped-back versions of their most recent material next month, Bombay Bicycle Club have now shared the next cut to be lifted from their upcoming collection.

The new alternative version of 'Racing Stripes', which originally appeared on their latest album 'Everything Else Has Gone Wrong', features guest vocals by Billie Marten and Liz Lawrence and follows on from the previously unveiled acoustic rendition of 'Let You Go' in previewing the new EP 'Two Lives', which will be released on the 24th July.

'Two Lives' will be made available to download on a ‘pay-what-you-want’ basis from the band’s website, with all proceeds going to two organisations: Chineke!, which creates opportunities for established Black and minority ethnic musicians, nurtures new talent by providing role models, and celebrates diversity in classical music, and Youth Music, which invests in music programs for young people in deprived areas, building confidence, resilience and self-esteem.
