Cooper Temple Clause have recorded a one-off single which will only be available to NME readers.
The band recorded new song ‘A.I.M.’ at Rockfield studios in Wales. As soon as the band finished recording, the track was rushed to NME to prepare for our exclusive giveaway in two weeks’ time (issue on sale October 2). Next week, you can read an exclusive interview with the band – and the week after you’ll be able to find out how you can get NME your exclusive, free Cooper Temple Clause single which won’t be available in the shops.
Singer Ben Gautrey explained the band’s decision to give a new song to NME readers. “We were going to do something before we go away for a few months to write a new single,” Ben told NME.COM. “We’re never keen on re-releasing songs because it’s cheating really – its unfair to ask fans to buy them again. Death In Vegas were going to remix ‘Did You Miss Me’ which we were really excited about. And we thought it would be a good idea to give it away through NME.
“But then Death In Vegas were really busy. We had the idea for this new song, so we just went into the studio very quickly and recorded it. We wanted to do something new. I’m sure many bands just give a track off their album. But people pay a lot of money to see a band and buy their albums, so it’s nice that NME were up for this and we can try and give something back.”
