Best Coast tease Record Store Day release – listen
The Bethany Cosentino-penned 'Fear Of My Identity' will come out on April 20
Best Coast have posted a teaser clip of their Record Store Day release online.
Scroll down to listen to a minute of the band's brand new song, 'Fear Of My Identity', which will be released on 7" on April 20.
Best Coast – the Los Angeles based duo made up of Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno – released their second album, 'The Only Place', last year. It followed 2010's 'Crazy For You'.
Jack White was recently named the official ambassador for Record Store Day 2013.
The former frontman of The White Stripes was named as the figurehead of the celebration of independent record shops thanks to the fact that he not only makes records, but also owns a record store and a record label: his Nashville based Third Man Records.
This year's Record Store Day takes place on April 20. Speaking about his role as ambassador, White said in a statement: "We need to reeducate ourselves about human interaction and the difference between downloading a track on a computer and talking to other people in person and getting turned onto music that you can hold in your hands and share with others."
