Twelfth Day - Speak From The Start
The new EP by Catriona's fiddle and harp duo Twelfth Day is now available for pre-order ahead of it's release on the 9th of December.
Speak From the Start is a collection of five cover songs Twelfth Day were inspired to create after being asked to cover Morrissey's You're The One For Me Fatty for BBC Radio Manchester's 40th birthday celebrations. They enjoyed the process of reworking a song different to their own style so much, that they decided to cover four more tracks, and the EP includes Twelfth Day's version of songs by Passion Pit, Blondie, Kanye West and Twin Atlantic as well as the Morrissey classic.
