Back in February, we alerted you to Channel Cairo‘s excellent new track “A Year”, which they posted online for a short period ahead of their appearance at the HMV Next Big Thing Festival.

Now, they’ve made the song available as a free download for a limited time ahead of its full release as their second official single in June – so be sure to grab it’s piping hot (and before the price goes up). Produced by Dave Bascombe (Doves, Ladyhawke, Placebo), it’s a more direct pop-rock number than its predecessor (and LFC Records release) “Elephant Room”, and we expect it to gain them many new admirers.

Earlier this week the band became the second Laissez Faire Club Records artist to be featured on Daytrotter.com (after The Static Jacks) – their 4 track session for the site, recorded at Crouch End’s Church Studios in February, features one-off, unique takes of “Elephant Room”, “A Year” and two brand new tracks (“Caterpillar” and “Halo”) which will undoubtedly feature in their new live set.

Speaking of which, a good one to get down to would be the launch party for the aforementioned new single, which takes place at Camden’s Barfly on Thursday 21 June.

Brand new Channel Cairo: “A Year”

“A Year” is Channel Cairo’s uplifting and emotive new track, which they’ve been locked away recording since the release of “Elephant Room” through Laissez Faire Club Records last summer.

You might remember it from its first incarnation as the band’s encore for their sold-out Borderline show last September. We’re picturing the band playing the song in large fields before the year is up, raising lighters and perhaps inducing a tear or two along the way.

Before that happens though, Channel Cairo return to the live scene at HMV’s Next Big Thing Festival at The Garage on Monday 6 February, supporting Atticus Anthem and Tellison. Tickets are available here.
