RM Hubbert releases a new four-track single, entitled ‘Recovery EP1’.

The Scottish Album of the Year award-winner’s self-released download contains four tunes, all cover versions.

The lead track is a version of The Bird by fellow SAY winner Kathryn Joseph, with versions of songs by Sebadoh, Minutemen and Sparklehorse also included.

The release doubles up as an appeal of sorts. Fans of Hubby will know, especially if they’ve attended one of his gigs, of his struggles with depression. “Basically, I haven’t been coping well,” he says in a very honest post on his Facebook page, as he details the reasons behind the EP – basically as a way of boosting his finances since he’s currently unable to work as he tries to recover from his illness.

The EP is available via his bandcamp page, below.
