"I think the first time I heard of Richard Hawley was when our album 'Biggest Bluest Hi Fi' came second to his 'Late Night Final' as Best Album of the Year in some Spanish awards thing," Camera Obscura's Carey Lander said in a statement. "I borrowed the album from Kenny [McKeeve, bandmate] and listened to it, hoping it would be rubbish so I could dismiss it and proclaim drastically 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."
'The Nights Are Cold' is off the aforementioned 'Late Night Final,' while Hawley is pulling remix duty on the somber Glasgow pop of Camera Obscura's 'The Sweetest Thing,' a cut off 2009's 'My Maudlin Career.' This is Obscura's first release of 2010 and should be a great piece of tour merchandise during the band's upcoming shows in Brazil and Mexico, as well as appearances at Coachella, Sasquatch, the Pavement-curated portion of All Tomorrow's Parties and the Harmonic festival in Cork, Ireland.
"Tackling a song from a record we love so much as quite daunting," Lander continued, "but I hope you like our version and enjoy the coupling of it with his remix of us."
