The upcoming Record Store Day: Black Friday will feature an exclusive new single from Garbage! Teaming up with John Doe and Exene Cervenka, Garbage will release a new song called “Destroying Angels”; its b-side is their cover of David Bowie’s “Starman,” taken from a Howard Stern radio broadcast earlier this year. The 7″ vinyl will be exclusive to RSD: Black Friday and is limited to just 3,000 copies. This will be the first and only physical release of “Destroying Angels” and “Starman.”
While you plot your Record Store Day: Black Friday plans, Garbage has granted fans a sneak peek at their new song:
On February 9th, Garbage’s cover of “Starman” first aired on The Howard Stern Tribute to David Bowie. You can hear the song in full below:
Beyond the upcoming new single, Garbage is also working on their 7th studio album. Guitarist Steve Marker recently stated that they’re aiming to release the album in late 2019 or early 2020.
The band is still in the early stages of the recording process. But if you’re desperate for some hint of the new sound, look no further than Garbage’s latest single. Last summer, “No Horses” was our first taste of where their next record is going, and one of five songs they’d already started. You can buy “No Horses” on iTunes or stream the song on Spotify now. Furthermore, all profits from sales and streaming of this song will be donated to the International Committee of the Red Cross through the end of 2018.
The band also just released an incredible biography last year, so be sure to pick up their book, This Is The Noise That Keeps Me Awake.
If you’re looking for more to collect, be sure pick up some concert tickets! Garbage is touring in celebration of Version 2.0. They’re currently touring North America, so grab your tickets before it’s too late! To get into the right spirits, listen to their reissue of Version 2.0 while you’re at it.
Catch up on all that’s gone into making the album so far, and get ready for “Destroying Angels,” exclusive to Record Store Day, this coming Black Friday. On November 23rd, you’ll be able to pick up this rare and limited 7″ vinyl! In the meantime, keep checking back here for all the latest Garbage news.
