Radiohead’s ‘Street Spirit (Fade Out)’ Was Covered by The Darkness

The Darkness, glam-rockers from Great Britain, Lowestoft, which was formed in 2000 recorded a cover version of the Radiohead’s ‘Street Spirit’ (Fade Out)’ which is now streaming online. It is the first studio-recorded cover of the band.

The first time when people heard the song was on Radiohead’s classic album ‘The Bends’ released in 1995. The song was released once again the next year; then it became a Top Five hit of the band.

The Darkness band places the song at live performances for couple of years already. Only now the studio version is scheduled to appear on ‘Hot Cakes’ album. Since yesterday you can hear ‘Street Spirit’ (Fade Out)’ song streaming at

Hot Cakes Album Cover

‘Hot Cakes’ is the first studio album of The Darkness since ‘One Way Ticket to Hell and Back’ album released in 2005. The album cover art is designed in honey colors. There are three syrup-daggled chicks wearing swimming suits. There is also a sign that the album is recorded in stereo. Probably guys believe there are bands which still record in mono [joking here].

‘Hot Cakes’ will be released on the 21st of August at Wind-Up Records. Tell me how good the album is if you are going to purchase one.
