Primal Scream
It features on 'Give Out But Don’t Give Up: The Original Memphis Recordings'...

Primal Scream have shared the rare early demo version of 'Big Jet Plane'.

The band recently unearthed a series of tapes intended for their album 'Give Out But Don't Give Up', but were scrapped before release.

Recorded with producer Tom Dowd and at the Muscle Shoals studio, new cut 'Big Jet Plane' is pure country soul.

Part Stones ballad, part Gram Parsons lament, it's bolstered by breathy saxophone and a gospel choir.

“I felt we went down there with such good intent, but somehow we lost our way afterwards,” Bobby Gillespie admits. “There’s definitely a lesson to be learned about how creativity can go down the wrong track. We’re a band that constantly keeps moving and doesn’t look back, but, for years, I felt bad about us going to Memphis and not doing what we set out to do. Hearing these songs after all this time has made everything all right again. I feel redeemed.”

Tune in now.

'Give Out But Don’t Give Up: The Original Memphis Recordings' is out now.
