Garbage return with first new recording in six years -- a cover of U2's 'Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses': Hear it here!

For fans of Garbage, when it rains it pours. (And we already know the rain triggers extreme jubilation.)

The band recently announced their reformation and the in-process-ness of their first new album since 2005′s Bleed Like Me, and now they have a freshly-recorded song just to let everybody know that they haven’t forgotten how to play their instruments in a studio.

The track is a cover of U2′s 1991 song “Who’s Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses,” one of the most beloved tracks from their landmark album Achtung Baby. It’s part of an Achtung tribute album put together by U.K. magazine Q that also includes contributions from Jack White (“Love Is Blindness”), Nine Inch Nails (“Zoo Station”), the Killers (“Ultraviolet (Light My Way)”), Depeche Mode (“So Cruel), Patti Smith (“Until the End of the World”), and the Fray (“Trying to Throw Your Arms Around the World”), among others.

Q is calling the tribute AHK-toong BAY-bi, and it’ll be floating around next week as a bonus on their new U2-themed issue. For now, spin Garbage’s “Who’s Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses” below. Doesn’t it feel good to hear Shirley Manson singing again? READ FULL STORY

Garbage announce new album for 2012: Welcome back, old envelope-pushing friends

Now that Butch Vig has gotten all the stories from the making of Nirvana’s Nevermind out of his system, it’s apparently time to get back to work as a member of one of the greatest bands of the ’90s. Garbage, the quartet consisting of Vig, fellow producers Steve Marker and Duke Erikson as well as Scottish über-vixen Shirley Manson, announced that they will have a new album coming in 2012.

“Years-worth of pent-up music came out in some bizarre ways. Bleary cell phone memos became real songs, conversations turned into lyrics, and new computer gizmos inspired wicked tangents,” the band said in a cryptic press release announcing their return. “Ghosts came in, had their say. Everyone brought ideas, and everyone fought their corner.  At the end of the day it all gets shoved through the four-way brain filter that is Garbage and it ends up sounding like nobody else. Red feathers and black tar.”

Garbage first appeared on the rock scene in 1995 with their self-titled debut, which scored a handful of big hits including the Clash loop-borrowing “Stupid Girl” and the anthemic “Only Happy When It Rains.” They returned in 1998 with Version 2.0, perhaps the most successful marriage of electronic music and traditional rock during the ill-fated electronica boom of the late ’90s.
