First Look: Garbage & Screaming Females Release A Music Video For ‘Because The Night’


Early last month we learned that Garbage is teaming up with Screaming Females for a cover of the Patti Smith classic Because the Night which will be released on limited edition vinyl for Record Store Day on April 20. Today, just a few days before Record Store Day the official music video for the single has been released.

    Because the Night was written by Bruce Springsteen for Patti

    Actually, that’s not altogether correct. Springsteen wrote a version for ‘Darkness on the Edge of Town’, and it was rejected. Jimmy Iovine gave a tape of it to Patti Smith, who coincidentally was recording ‘Easter’ at the same studios at the same time(Iovine produced both albums). Smith rewrote the track, and it’s always been credited as “co-written by”.

    • Correct and, in any event, the song is still a Patti Smith classic since her rendition is the original/IMHO most beloved.
