Template:Wikipedia "Of the Night" is a single by Bastille, released on the 11th October 2013 as a digital download, and then it was released on 10" picture disc vinyl on the 18th November. It was re-released on vinyl for Record Store Day 2014.

Background Edit

"Of the Night" is a mash up of two 1990s dance songs, "The Rhythm of the Night" by Corona and "Rhythm Is a Dancer" by Snap!.[1][2] The song was originally on Bastille's first mixtape Other People's Heartache, which was released in 2012 as a free download.[3][4]

"That's a strange one. It's kind of a tongue-in-cheek thing that we did that kind of got out of hand. It started off because Dan got really ill when we first got signed, and so to ease his way back into vocal recording we decided to do some mixtapes using old songs that we listened to growing up. These were interesting songs you wouldn't expect us to cover and try to reinvent in a more current kind of way, and then it became one of our biggest songs. Then we started doing it live just because it was a cool song and was fun to play, and audiences started to really kind of dig it. And it all started off like a little experiment."

—Will Farquarson, talking about "Of the Night"[5]
