The release will feature the band covering songs by the two legendary bands as well as remixes of their own tracks.
‘Blood’ will be issued on two formats – a strictly limited and numbered 10” vinyl which will be deleted on the day of release, and an accompanying enhanced CD.
The 10” vinyl will come with a cover of Talking Heads’ ‘Road To Nowhere’ on the B-side with Jason Pierce’s remix of ‘Camera’, while the CD will feature Editors’ version of R.E.M’s ‘Orange Crush’, a mix of ‘Camera’ by Paul Oakenfold and the video for ‘Blood’.
‘Blood’ will be released on June 19.
Editors are currently touring in Japan and will return for a sold-out UK jaunt in late May.
The band are currently working on tracks for their second album, which they will begin recording after the summer festivals.
