Frightened Rabbit have unveiled the Harkin & Sarah Silverman and Manchester Orchestra versions of My Backwards Walk, and the full cast of musicians who have helped to put a brand new take on their Midnight Organ Fight album for its 10th anniversary.

Along with Biffy Clyro and Julien Baker whose recordings of The Modern Leper were revealed last week, the likes of The Twilight Sad, Wintersleep, Craig Finn and Daughter have also contributed to Tiny Changes, a project which the Rabbits have said Scott Hutchison played a ‘vital part of bringing together’.

“To celebrate the 10 year anniversary/birthday of The Midnight Organ Fight we wanted to avoid the usual approach of just repressing the vinyl, or rereleasing the same record with different artwork or putting out demos that were never meant to be heard by anyone other than the band and maybe our parents,” the band explained.

“We came up with the idea of asking some pals to record their own interpretations of the songs on the album. It felt like a good way to celebrate everyone who had been a part of the last ten years of the band and we didn’t have to do any work ourselves!”

“Every single person on Tiny Changes has been a part of our lives and Frightened Rabbit in a special way over the last ten years. We’ve shared studios, vans, bars, dressing rooms and probably even underwear with some of these people and that’s why this record is so special to us.”
