Friendly Fires Gather Tracks from Junior Boys, Grouper, SBTRKT for 'LateNightTales' Comp
The long-running LateNightTales compilation series recently issued set curated by Scottish twee stars Belle and Sebastian and Metronomy, and up next will be a compilation courtesy of UK dance-pop act Friendly Fires. The group's DJ set will be presented November 5.

While it's not a proper follow-up to the act's 2011 sophomore album Pala, the compilation contains one new tune from the band in the form of a cover of Eberhard Schoener and Sting's 1978 electronic single "Why Don't You Answer."

The release also shines a spotlight on Friendly Fire's favourite tunes from a diverse range of artists, including Junior Boys, Stereolab, Grouper, Cocteau Twins, Olivia Newton-John, SBTRKT, Slowdive and more. You can catch a sneak peek of the set in the sampler stream down below.

On top of the tunes, the closing track is the first instalment of a multipart bedtime story called "Flat of Angels" that is narrated by English actor Benedict Cumberbatch (Atonement, The Hobbit).
