Black Rebel Motorcycle Club releases its new album, Specter At The Feast, on March 18th. The first single from the record, “Let The Day Begin,” is a cover of a song originally recorded by The Call, whose lead singer Michael Been passed away suddenly from a heart attack in 2010. Been’s son Robert is the lead singer of BRMC, and up until his death Michael had worked closely with the band. The younger Been told Rolling Stone: “We all wanted to cover a Call song for this record. It means a lot to us to be able to pay respect to Michael for all he’s done for us.” Black Rebel Motorcycle Club play the TLA on Sunday, May 5th. Go here for tickets and more information about the show. Download the song (in exchange for your e-mail address) here, or listen to it below. We’ve also included the original video version of the song by The Call for you to watch.
