"Burnt Out Car" is Saint Etienne's new single
Posted at 3:37 PM, 23 July 2008 -

Saint Etienne have revealed on the band's newsletter that their new single will in fact be a Xenomania-produced re-make of "Burnt Out Car". The single will precede the release of London Conversations: The Best Of Saint Etienne.

"Burnt Out Car" first appeared in 1996 as a remix version produced by Balearico (a.k.a. Brian Higgins and Matt Gray). Earlier this year, Sarah Cracknell told Popjustice that the song should have been reworked and put out as a single: "(...) there is a track that could benefit from a certain something but mainly because it never came out properly. It's a track called 'Burnt Out Car' which we recorded with Brian Higgins of Xenomania fame. It's just really good and should have been a single and given more of a chance in life."

"Burnt Out Car 2008" is now set for an early September release on CD-S and 7'' vinyl. The single package will include a remix by Mark Brown ("Balearic mix", available on CD2) and three new b-sides: "River" on the 7", "Destroy The Building" and "Night Vision" on CD1.

September will also see the release of Saint Etienne's new compilation entitled London Conversations. It will come in three different editions:
-- a condensed, standard 18-track greatest hits;
-- a 2-disc set which will include "Lover Plays The Bass" and "This Is Tomorrow" (a new song co-written with Annie and produced by Richard X);
-- a 3-disc set in a book cover with a DVD of Saint Etienne's videos.

Now I'm a little nervous though. The "original" (i.e. the Xeno remix) is already so good that I'm wondering if/how you could possibly make it better. BTW the "real" original (the one that surfaced about a year ago) is also amazing in a very different way.

It will be interesting to see what Xenomania will do with the song.
