Matt Ellis’ new Double A-Side Single, “Candy / Dangers of the Night” is now available on iTunes. The follow up to 2010′s “Births, Deaths & Marriages” features a cover of “Candy” the Iggy Pop hit off 1990′s “Brick By Brick”. Ellis has slowed the duet down, drenching it with pedal steel, fiddle and banjo, giving it an Americana swagger and making it one of his own. Matt’s wife, Vavine, joins him on the track performing the female vocals made famous by Kate Pierson on the original.

The B-Side, “Dangers Of The Night”, is a new original tune featuring returning guest, Jacob Valenzuela (Calexico) on trumpet. The upbeat desert rocker showcases Ellis’ storytelling, taking the listener on a wild ride with two characters that meet an untimely end.

Produced by Matt Ellis, the two tracks were recorded by Ronan Chris Murphy at Veneto West in Santa Monica and mixed by Craig Schumacher (“Births, Deaths…”) at WaveLab in Tucson, Az. The single was mastered by J.J. Golden.
