JJ72 have announced details of a new single, ‘SNOW’, released on January 29, which will coincide with their appearance on the NME CARLING AWARDS TOUR later in the month.

The single, which was originally released last February, will be backed by new track ‘Wounded’, the original demo of ‘Surrender’ and rare track ‘Gherkin’, which featured on the original pressings of the ‘October Swimmer’ single.

JJ72 mainman Mark Greaney previously told NME.COM that the band planned to record a version of the Pet Shop Boys 1987 Number One hit ‘It’s A Sin’ as a B-side, but that is now not the case for this release.
