Wild Beasts have announced that their next single from album Smother is to be the exquisitely bittersweet 'Reach A Bit Further', and HURRAH! with this announcement comes a new track! Entitled 'Thankless Thing'; a track that was recorded with long time collaborator and producer, Richard Formby at the start of the Smother sessions.
If you, like me, have been collecting all the B-sides from the previous singles off Smother, the single will be available on the 14th of November via digital download and on limited edition coloured 12” vinyl, together with all the b-sides. You can pre-order it HERE.
But back to this new b-side. 'Thankless Thing' is another beautiful track, loaded with everything I've come to know about Wild Beasts. Simultaneously sensual and spiritual, tender and unforgiving, 'Thankless Thing' is a lovely thing.
