Secret Space release music video for cover of Weezer’s “Butterfly”

 

Toledo-based alternative band Secret Space has released the second single from their forthcoming album The Window Room Part 2; Lost in a Dream, a reimagined and stripped down version of their debut album on Equal Vision Records. The track “Butterfly” (originally premiering with Chorus.fm) is an acoustic version of Weezer’s Pinkerton cut and was surprisingly recorded years before Secret Space formed.

Our recording of this song actually slightly predates Secret Space,” says guitarist/vocalist Dean Tartaglia. “Steve (drummer) and I recorded this in spring of 2014, before Secret Space was even an idea. Steve produces bands for a living, and I was just a guinea pig testing out some new equipment/recording techniques to make his acoustic recordings sound more up-close/intimate. We chose Butterfly because we both love Pinkerton and Butterfly is the most personal moment on that record. Flash forward almost 3 years later, we never had any intention of putting this song out, but when we came up with the idea for an acoustic record, we rediscovered our version of Butterfly and realized that it was exactly how our record needed to sound. Instead of trying to re-record it, we decided to stick with the version we had and put it on the record as is. It’s kind of amazing to listen back to it now; it’s technically the very first Secret Space recording, and because of that it will always feel pure to me.

The original version of The Window Room was released last June on Equal Vision Records and was produced by Will Yip (Circa Survive, Citizen, Turnover). This time around, the band kept it in-house, having drummer Steve Warstler produce the record in his new studio “The Master Bedroom,” focusing on one production style and one vibe. Tartaglia and company will play a few select dates in NY with Envy on the Coast before Tartaglia branches out on an 11-date solo run in support of the new record.

The Window Room Part 2 is available March 17th Bandcamp
