“Fred New Single: Battles”

‘Battles’ is the first new music to be released by FRED since their highly acclaimed ‘Leaving My Empire’ album.

Already described by Today FM’s KC as “an absolute cracker”, the track combines Funk Horns from the 70s and Motown Grooves from the 60s, but is also brought right up to date by FRED’s trademark alt-pop sound of vocal and melodic hooks, and an incessant rhythm that seems to push the song right out of the speakers at you.

Mostly recorded during the sessions for ‘Leaving My Empire’, Bass enigma Jamin takes up the story – “We laid all the groundwork for this track in Hotel2Tango Studios in Montreal but just never got to finish it off, so obviously it wasn’t a contender for the album. This happened with a couple of tracks, but Battles was the one that we all really liked and regretted not completing, so now that we are beginning to think about recording new material, it didn’t make sense to leave this track unfinished before moving on to newer songs.”

The single release is a double A-side with a live version of ‘Running’, one of FRED’s biggest radio hits from their ‘Go God Go’ album. It was recorded in front of a packed Cork Opera House. It captures not only the energy and enthusiasm of FRED and their accompanying brass and string sections but also that of the sold-out audience.

You can watch the performance at the following link-  “Running”

Both tracks will be available to download for free from www.fredtheband.com from April 1st.
