Frightened Rabbit frontman Scott Hutchison has recorded a cover of the Death Cab For Cutie song 'Different Names for the Same Thing'. You can watch the video below.

Speaking to SPIN magazine about his version of the track from 'Plans', Hutchison said:

I almost tried to 'countrify' the song, as it has such a strong beautiful melody. It's a very simple song at its core, so I just stuck with that basic structure and let it be plaintive and sad.



The song is intended as a thank you to Frightened Rabbit fans who have supported the charity Invisible Children.




Invisible Children is an organisation seeking to end the use of child soldiers in Central Africa. You can visit their website here.

Speaking about the charity Hutchison said:

Face to face, person to person encounters are so much more effective than blanket campaigns. Charity work should be personal as well as widespread and I think this is a great way to achieve both.



Frightened Rabbit are currently supporting Death Cab For Cutie on their North American tour.
