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
