Fear Of Men’s beautiful album Fall Forever made our 50 Best Albums Of The Year So Far list. One of the standout tracks was “Erase (Aubade),” and today the Brighton indie-pop trio has shared a less melancholy alternate version of the song entitled “Change Me” via Gorilla Vs. Bear. Here’s what the band had to say about the song:
Like most of our songs, “Erase (Aubade)” went through lots of different incarnations before the one that we chose to place on Fall Forever. This is one of its earlier iterations, with lyrics that ended up almost completely changed on the final version. In this version it’s much more of a classic pop song, so we thought it would be fun to release to share a more euphoric side of our inherent miserabilism.
Fall Forever is out now.
