Out Now: Babylon - the first single by Booka Shade and Craig Walker, feat. Urdur (GusGus)
One of the stand-out songs on the forthcoming Booka Shade album „GALVANY STREET" is "BABYLON", a 90´s Manchester inspired anthem that was finished as the very last piece of the album. 7 of the 10 songs on „GALVANY STREET" are co-written with and sung by Craig Walker, former singer of the post-rock band Archive. For the backing vocals of "BABYLON" Urdur, the singer of Iceland´s favourites GusGus, was invited to complete the song.
"BABYLON" features 2 special versions of the song. A much shorter, more instant Single Version and a longer, club friendly Extended Mix, inspired by classic 80s 12inch releases. Next to the exclusive single versions of "BABYLON" there is also the wonderful „Changes“, another collaboration with Craig Walker, which is not featured on the album.
"BABYLON" is available at bookashade.com:

„BABYLON is about how in a relationship one person can be totally destroyed by the other with just words or in fact a single phrase. The lyrics are a conversation between two people in a relationship. They still love each other but can't help destroying each other sometimes with words - we've all been there! People are ultimately very delicate no matter how physically strong they may be.“ (Craig Walker)
