Smith and Burrows
Andy Burrows (I Am Arrows/ ex Razorlight) and Tom Smith (Editors) announce a joint collaboration project Smith and Burrows. The duo are pleased to reveal their Christmas album ‘Funny Looking Angels’ will be released on 28th November 2011- it features guest vocals from a variety of musical friends including rising Danish star Agnes Obel. It also includes an eclectic range of cover versions from Yazoo’s ‘Only You’ and Black’s ‘Wonderful Life’ (which they performed together some years previously) to The Longpigs ‘On and On’ and cult Birmingham band Delta’s ‘Funny Looking Angels’, which also gave them their album title and is an affectionate nod from Tom to his formative musical years in the city.
The album will be released on 28th November, but you can catch a preview track ‘Funny Looking Angels’ right now via the Smith & Burrows website:
