“Blue Cassette” (Friendly Fires Cover)

    Sometimes, mutual appreciation can lead to more than shout-outs in interviews. The latest example of this comes via masked-U.K. producer SBTRKT and the guys in Friendly Fires. They were apparently digging each other’s material, which led to a conversation that then took them all to the studio. As SBTRKT told Australian’s triple j, his next project will feature a track with him on the boards and Friendly Fires on the instrumentation and vocals. While we’re obviously going to have to wait to hear the results of their collaboration, you can get a sample of what it might sound like here with SBTRKT and Sampha’s cover of Friendly Fires’ “Blue Cassette.” They performed the track live at the BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge and you can stream and download it below.
