Diamonds In The Dark
Mystery Jets release a new EP 'Diamonds In The Dark' through 679 Recordings on September 4th 2006. The title track which originally appears on the bands debut album, 'Making Dens', released in March of this year, has been re-recorded with the legendary Stephen Street.
'Diamonds In The Dark' has been changed from a standard single to an EP to incorporate the incredible run of three new tracks the band have recorded with legendary DJ and now producer Erol Alkan over one 6 day session.
Released on four track CD and two 7"s, the EP will include 4 brand new tracks including the West Coast psych pop of Syd Barrett tribute 'Scarecrows In The Rain', the Liquid Liquid meets Zongamin meets Roxy Music jam of 'Crosswords', which is already kicking up a storm on dancefloors up and down the land, 'A Private Place' which features the brass section from Rumblestrips and a special acoustic cover of Diamonds' by London troubadour Kid Harpoon.
He also slapped a jet-lagged Taylor Hawkins.
The acclaimed performer had just cancelled touring due to a battle with cancer.
