Skream teams with Smiths cover band singer for 'There is a Light That Never Goes Out' cover

…And asks Smiths fans to quit it with the death threats.

Late last year, Skream remixed The Smiths’ This Charming Man’ and was “absolutely annihilated” in the process (ahem).

Undaunted, he’s returned with a piano-led cover of ‘There is a Light That Never Goes Out’ — featuring the vocals of Graham Sampson, the leader singer for Smiths cover band (tribute band?) The Smyths. Stream it below; Skream explained the song’s origin on Soundcloud:

RIGHT….

The last time I touched a piece of The Smiths music I got absolutely annihilated…

Let me explain my reason behind this cover please.

Whenever I play in Manchester I end my set with a big Manchester record and last Friday being my return to Store Street I needed a track I hadnt used before..I’ve played all the obvious ones ‘Love WIll Tear Us Apart’ New Order, STone Roses etc etc….

So I picked this track but didn’t just want to play the original..
So I figured out a piano version but couldn’t find an acapella..

I then went on to spend my day listening to Smiths cover band and came across ‘The Smyths’ (www.thesmyths.net ) and contacted them and was introduced to Graham Sampson the lead singer who agreed to re sing it for me….

I wasnt gonna upload it but theres been demand from the people who were there Friday to hear it again and from people who wanna hear it from a video clip I uploaded..

Anyway..Here it is….And to all the Smiths fans please..No more death threats looooool
