STREAM: Coheed and Cambria – “Dark Side of Me” (Remix Featuring Mike Einziger of Incubus)

coheed and cambria

Coheed and Cambria recently worked with Incubus guitarist Mike Einziger to record the band’s new song, “Dark Side of Me”. Einziger is now streaming the song on SoundCloud.

“Coheed & Cambria’s manager asked me if I’d be interested in working with the band. The collaboration came about in a really organic way,” Einziger told KROQ. “Claudio, the singer of Coheed & Cambria, came out and stayed with me at my house in Malibu for a couple of days. We listened to a bunch of music and spent some time talking about it. He played me some of the music they’d been working on, and I picked out the song ‘Dark Side of Me,’ which the band and already written and recorded. I asked if we could do a different version of it. Almost like a remix, but an entirely different version of the song altogether, with new vocals. Claudio sang and played the guitar parts, and I did everything else. He gave me the freedom to do what I wanted with the song, and it came out great!”

The original version of “Dark Side of Me” will be released on Coheed and Cambria’s forthcoming album, The Afterman: Decension, which is available for pre-sale on iTunes and due for release on February 5. Einziger’s version of “Dark Side of Me” will be available on the deluxe version of the album. Stream Einziger’s re-imagining of “Dark Side of Me” below.
