Quick Overview

"The Nights Are Cold" b/w "The Sweetest Thing" is a special release that Camera Obscura has put together in honour of Richard Hawley, as he has been one of their favorite artists for years. The A-Side features them covering his "The Nights Are Cold", while the B-side is Richard's own remix of their "The Sweetest Thing" (taken from their My Maudlin Career album of last year). Speaking of Richard and this release, Carey Lander from the band said, "I think the first time I heard of Richard Hawley was when our album Biggest Bluest Hifi came second to his Late Night Final as the Best Album Of The Year in some Spanish awards thing. I borrowed the album from Kenny and listened to it, hoping it would be rubbish so I could dismiss it and proclaim dramatically that we'd been robbed. Unfortunately, it was the record to have most excited me on a first listen ever. It went straight on repeat, I wrote him an email of gushing admiration and phoned Tracyanne to tell her I'd heard something amazing and would bring it round to her house as soon as possible. Tackling a song from a record we love so much was quite daunting but I hope you like our version and enjoy the coupling of it with his remix of us."
