Martyn LeNoble & Christian Eigner will release a cover of David Bowie and Giorgio Moroder’s “Cat People (Putting Out Fire)” featuring Mark Lanegan (The Screaming Trees) and Dave Gahan (Depeche Mode).

The single will be released on Tuesday, August 2nd, 2016 and will only be available as a digital release.

The release comes after years of crossover collaborations in various projects and bands of Martyn LeNoble, Christian Eigner, Mark Lanegan and Dave Gahan. Martyn: “It truly was a labor of love, a farewell and a ‘thank you!’ Everyone’s contribution lifted the track. So long David Bowie.”

The original track (which you can hear below) was the theme song to the lovely 1982 American erotic horror film “Cat People” directed by Paul Schrader and starring Nastassja Kinski and Malcolm McDowell. Giorgio Moroder composed the film’s score, including the theme song which features lyrics and vocals by David Bowie.

Mark Lanegan is known for his solo albums, The Screaming Trees, and his countless collaborations (Queens of the
Stone Age, Soulsavers, Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan). Martyn LeNoble from his side recorded and toured with Dave Gahan, Mark Lanegan, Soulsavers, Porno For Pyros, Jane’s Addiction and The Cult. And finally, Christian Eigner plays drums for Depeche Mode, co-produced and co-wrote Dave Gahan’s solo album “Hourglass” and co-wrote the Depeche Mode single “Suffer Well.

Here’s the original:

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
