Breathe – single overview

‘Breathe’ is a cover version of a song originally released by The Prodigy in 1996 on their album ‘The Fat of the Land’. The first time I heard The Prodigy’s ‘Breathe’, I knew it would make an awesome metal song with its dark notes, crushing riffs, and atmospheric bridge”, states lead singer Peter Tuthil. “Now about 20 years later the time has come to show the world how I heard it, and what I imagined right from the get go. I believe that in order to make a good cover of another artist’s song, it’s best to look outside of your own genre of music, and think outside the box. We wanted to breathe new life into a classic song known by many, while at the same time, interpreting it in our own style… I think we did that quite well here.” Guitarist Zoran Panovic adds, “The first time I heard The Prodigy 20 years ago, I thought they were so groundbreaking and different from anything else I had ever heard. When we decided to make a cover it wasn’t a hard choice for us.

‘Breathe’ by Despite is available digitally April 7 for download via iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play, while streaming via Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, and more.
