Frightened Rabbit @ Lollapalooz 2010 (more by Josh Darr)
"Having [recently] kicked off their headlining tour, [Frightened Rabbit] is simultaneously ramping up for their fourth single, "The Loneliness and the Scream" (FatCat Records), due December 8. For the b-side, frontman Scott Hutchison teamed up with The Hold Steady's Craig Finn for an all-male duet of the Elton John and Kiki Dee classic, "Don't Go Breaking My Heart." Dressed in Hutchison's individually hand made artwork, the physical single will be included in a limited 500-edition box set that will house all four 7-inch singles from the album.The Craig Finn duet audio is still not available, but you can check out the "The Loneliness and the Scream" video below.
The unique choice of a cover was actually planned well ahead and Hutchison turned to a respected peer to see it through. "The b-side has been an idea of mine for a couple of years actually, two guys singing the Elton John/Kiki Dee duet. When I was making a list of the ideal Kiki's, Craig Finn was at the top," reveals Hutchison. "I couldn't believe it when he agreed to do the part. Craig is quite simply one of my favorite lyricists and his voice works brilliantly in the role." Frightened Rabbit's part was recorded at Glasgow's CaVa Studios while Finn recorded his vocal in The Hold Steady's studio, Wild Arctic Recording in New York.
Ahead of the single's release, a video for "The Loneliness and the Scream" [was released]
