Hybrid – Classics : We need your help…

Distinctive are planning to release a Hybrid greatest hits album to celebrate our 12 years working together and although it feels slightly odd to have reached this stage in our career, we have released four albums of which we are very proud and this will be a fine way of showcasing some of the highlights. We’ve specially chosen our favourite tracks and have curated a selection of unreleased and rare versions for the deluxe edition. The album is due for release this Autumn and will be available digitally and on CD.

We are going to record a special cover version of another artist’s track to go on the album and would like YOUR help in deciding exactly which cover this should be. If you want to get involved, please feel free to leave your suggestion on this site, Facebook or Twitter and let us know which song should be given the royal Hybrid treatment! We will record our favourite for the Classics album and give those who came up with the idea a Deluxe signed version upon release at the end of the year. We’ll also be giving ten runners up who’s suggestions we liked the most a copy of the Classics CD.

Good luck and for f&%k’s sake no Alanis Morisette!!!

The track features vocals from Placebo’s Brian Molko and the single includes mixes by us and Brazilian producer Superstrings.
