Saint Etienne - Burnt Out Car Single Minded Promotions
CD released: 22nd September 2008 Download available from: 22nd September 2008
Released by: Universal Music

Taken from their upcoming, all-encompassing Best Of collection, 'Burnt Out Car' is the brand new single from Saint Etienne.

Released to co-incide with their headline show at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on September 14th, it's vintage Saint Et'. Produced by Brian Higgins of the Xenomania pop factory (with whom the band have worked regularly in recent years), 'Burnt Out Car' is Saint Etienne doing what they do best − creating shiny, melodic, super-pop for heart and head. It's a ripe Balearic anthem fit for this, that, or any other year.

The much-loved trio (comprised of Sarah Cracknell, Bob Stanley, and Pete Wiggs) who sound-tracked London in the nineties, Saint Etienne will have their career, in all its multilayered, multicoloured glory reviewed on 'London Conversations' - a complete, concise Very Best Of collection of all the 'hits', plus previously unreleased tracks, on September 29th.

Pulling together 35 songs from an 18 year odyssey, across several different record labels, 'London Conversations' maps their career from blissful baggy ecstasy through breakbeat rap ('Filthy'), indie-dance anthems ('Only Love Can Break Your Heart'), proto-Britpop and early folk-tronica, to the 21st century pop of 'Burnt Out Car' and beyond. A second brand new single 'This Is Tomorrow', the theme from their last movie, will follow later in the year.
