Download-only Single

Sideways In Reverse/Driving Death Valley Blues
Catalogue Number BBQ 378DL - available 12th July

Prior to the long-awaited release of Mark Lanegan's new album 'Bubblegum' on 2nd August two tracks taken from the album will be available as a download single on Monday, 12th July. Both of the songs were among the last to be written and recorded for 'Bubblegum', and are reminiscent of the heyday of Screaming Trees, and of course, Mark's work with Queens Of The Stone Age over the last couple years.

Mark has just completed a stunning video for 'Sideways in Reverse' and this can be viewed on the Beggars website shortly. Artwork for the single is also available to download - see
