The band release their D-12 cover due to huge demand from fans...

Embrace are to cover D-12 on their new single.

The barmy tribute comes on the B-side to forthcoming single ‘Ashes’, due out on November 15.

The returning Britpoppers originally covered ‘How Come’ by Eminem’s crew on the Live Lounge slot on Jo Whiley’s Radio 1 show, and were persuaded to release the track after demand from fans.

SingerDanny McNamara said: “After putting the track together at the last minute for the Jo Whiley show we didn’t really know what to expect. Richard (McNamara, guitarist) was visibly shaking just before we went on air, but the response to it has been amazing. It’s one of the most requested songs at gigs. We just had to put it on the new single.”

‘Ashes’ will be the second single release from the band’s number one album ‘Out Of Nothing’ and comes backed across the formats with new tracks ‘Enough’, ‘Maybe I Will’, ‘Flaming Red Hair’ as well as ‘How Come’.
