Incubus Streaming Reimagined Version Of “Echo” From “Morning View XXIII”


Incubus have popped the lid off of their newly re-recorded version of their fourth studio album, 2001’s “Morning View“. The group went back to the studio to lay down a reimagined version of that album last year for an upcoming May 10th release as “Morning View XXIII” (pre-order.) “Echo is the first revisited track to be released from it.

In addition to showcasing the tracks in a different light, this re-record also features the talents of the band’s new full-time bassist Nicole Row. The group, who signed with Virgin Music last year, have also earned back to the rights to the re-recording of their past albums, as vocalist Brandon Boyd recently told Rolling Stone:

“It was definitely part of the discussion. Through time, we won our re-record rights back, and it’s not unimportant to the process. To me, it’s sort of a less interesting part of the process, but still a part of it. When you’re involved in the making of music, especially when it’s exotic recording contracts from the Nineties, you pour your soul out and give everything you have into these recordings, and then ultimately you don’t own them. And there’s something not unusual about that, but it’s also sad.

So we’ve been around long enough now. We got to that point after all the decades where we’ve started to get our re-record rights back. We’ll never own the masters to the original recordings, but in the contracts it basically says that should we choose to re-record the album, we then own those master recordings. So it just gives a little bit more license and ownership to these tracks. But like I said, it’s not the most important thing.”

Incubus also have tour booked celebrating that album this summer. Coheed And Cambria will be out with them on that run.
