Lostprophets reveal Labrinth hit was intended to be collaboration
Lostprophets have revealed that Labrinth’s hit single, ‘Earthquake,’ was originally intended to be a collaboration between the two artists.
The Welsh six-piece, who release new album, 'Weapons,' on Apr 2, worked on the track with the Tinie Tempah producer last year, and frontman Ian Watkins told The Daily Star that they were initially surprised when they heard his solo version was to be released.
“We’re fussy and perfectionists and in the meantime I guess Lab was impatient, which is fine. It wasn’t like Lab said: ‘You can’t have it.’ He got on with his own thing.
“But when I heard it on the radio I had to do a double-take. I was like: ‘It’s leaked.’
However, the 34-year-old claimed that their version of the song, which reached number two in the UK back in October last year, will eventually see the light of day, and possibly with Labrinth himself:
“We always bump into each other at festivals. We might end up playing it again with each other, doing half his version and half ours.”
