Duo played new song 'We'll Be Waiting' in front of the Queen's unwitting guests
The pair release their new album ‘Treasure House’ on June 3, the follow-up to their self-titled debut LP in 2011. Promoting the LP, Zeffira and Badwan have unveiled a video consisting of secret footage filmed during a private art talk for a group of guests at Buckingham Palace, the London home of the royal family.
According to a press release, guests thought they were being treated to Renaissance-era compositions linked to the Queen’s art collection. Instead, the duo performed ‘We’ll Be Waiting’, with Badwan singing and Zeffira playing a woodwind instrument called the Dulcian.
Cat’s Eyes had previously pulled a similar stunt by playing their first ever gig at the Vatican in 2011.
The tracklisting for ‘Treasure House’ is as follows:
‘Be Careful Where You Park Your Car’
‘Everything Moves Towards The Sun’
‘The Missing Hour’
‘Girl in the Room’
‘We’ll be Waiting’
‘Names On The Mountains’
