As previously reported. Winter Hill will also be released on 7″ vinyl. It seems as if there will not be a CD single released. If this is the case, Winter Hill would be doves first single/EP not to be released on CD since the Cedar EP back in 1998.
DOVES Winter Hill 2009 UK limited edition 2-track 7″ vinyl single – Known locally, ‘Winter Hill’ is a beauty spot between Chorley and Bolton in the West Pennine Moors. It’s famed for its UFO sightings, mining activity, aeroplane disasters and murders but to Doves it clearly means something altogether more magical and ethereal. Already a fan’s favourite, ‘Winter Hill’ ushers the listener in via a pop Reich repetition, all looped effects and soaring synths before morphing into what canonly be described as a love song. Furthermore, on the b-side, there’s a totally different change of pace with the Dylanesque ‘Brazil’, a new track that adds yet another dimension to Doves repertoire!.
Winter Hill is released July 20th. It is expected the download single will feature a host of Jetstream remixes.
Doves official site doves.net have confirmed that the release date for Winter Hill is to be July 6th. No more details have been released as yet. They also state Kingdom Of Rust has gone platinum. The album currently sits at number 99 on the album chart.
Edit: doves.net has since changed the date, to July 20th.
