Late last year, Scotland's The Twilight Sad released their acclaimed fourth album, Nobody Wants to Be Here and Nobody Wants to Leave, to a wave of critical adulation that made it quite possibly the band's most acclaimed record to date. Now they return with a legendary collaboration, a Robert Smith (The Cure) cover of NWTBHANWTL highlight - and early single - 'There's a Girl in the Corner.'
The band had hoped Smith might be able to contribute to an album of remixes drawn from their third album, No One Can Ever Know, but alas owing to other commitments it wasn't to be. As the band’s Andy MacFarlane explains though, it wasn't the end of their relationship with Smith: "After we recorded Nobody Wants To Be Here And Nobody Wants To Leave I sent it to Robert to have a listen, and he said it was ‘BEAUTIFUL’. We wanted to do something special for the 'It Never Was the Same' single, as it was going to be the last release from the album. I knew it was a pretty far fetched idea but thought I might as well chance my arm and ask Robert if he’d be up for covering one of our songs to feature as a double A-side. I couldn’t believe it when he replied saying he’d like to cover 'There’s a Girl in the Corner."
