The Big Pink and Paul Epworth Rework "Tonight"; Release as Band's 3rd Official Single

Earlier this week, The Big Pink released their third proper single from debut album, A Brief History of Love. Tonight is their fifth single overall and was let out on 7" vinyl and as a digital download this past Tuesday, April 26.



The single features a new recording of Tonight, produced by Paul Epworth (who also receives writing credit on this version of the song), and the band's cover of Beyonce's Sweet Dreams serving as the B-side. Epworth calls on his dual knowledge of dance floors and pop charts, ensuring Tonight translates smoothly from transistor radios to crowded night clubs.


Europe and UK kiddos? You're in luck, as The Big Pink tours extensively throughout Spring/Summer. Check out dates here.
