Lightspeed Champion Confirms New Single Details

October 27, 2009 by  


Dev Hynes aka Lightspeed Champion, is back with a brand new single, Marlene, on 25th January 2010.

Dev Hynes plays every instrument on all three b-sides himself – a concerto; a cover of Serge Gainsbourg?s 69 Ann?e Erotique (completely in French!) and his version of (He?s) The Great Imposter, written in 1961 by eighteen-year old Sharon Sheeley, the fianc? and songwriter of Eddie Cochran.

Marlene will be a glimpse of what?s to come from Lightspeed Champion?s forthcoming album, the much anticipated follow-up to 2008?s Falling Off The Lavender Bridge, details of which will be announced here soon.

Below is a sneak preview of Dev Hynes in the studio.

Marlene will be available on 10? vinyl (RUG345) and via digital download (RUG345D). The tracklisting is as follows:

1 – Concerto .2 “So Long! So Long!”
