Tour Dates And Single From Blonde Redhead
Blonde Redhead are on tour in Europe now, and 4AD will be releasing a new single next week (May 24th) to coincide with the dates.
Like Elephant Woman, Equus will be available as a CD, a coloured vinyl 7", and as a digital download. The lead track is taken from the acclaimed Misery Is A Butterfly album, and it's accompanied by some truly wonderful b-sides : a version of Messenger performed by David Sylvian and a re-recording of Melody, which is sung in French by Kazu Makino.
