Civil Twilight have released a beautiful, goose-bump inducing cover of Billy Idol's "Dancing With Myself." The song, which originally premiered on Consequence of Sound has been re-worked into a softly-spoken, sprawling ballad in perfect Civil Twilight fashion.
The song will be available as a bonus track on the special acoustic re-release of the band's album, Story of an Immigrant which will drops on July 15 via Wind-up Records. The record will also feature two more bonus tracks, "Letters from the Sky" and "Save Yourself".
"I was sitting down with a friend of mine listening to that song one day,” recalls frontman Steven McKellar. “He read me the lyrics while the song was playing and I just thought they were so beautiful. They struck me in a way that they never had before. I thought, ‘This song would make such a beautiful ballad.’ So we decided to record it that way, really sparse and sensitive.”
