Camera Obscura - 'Making Money' Lyric Video
Camera Obscura : 'Making Money' Lyric Video
12th April 2022

Camera Obscura trail their Record Store Day 2022 release, Making Money: 4AD B-Sides & Rarities, with a brand-new lyric video for the compilation’s opening and title track.

Curated by the band, the compilation is a mine of hard-to-find B-sides, cover versions (with 10cc, Bruce Springsteen, Gene Autry, Jim Reeves and Richard Hawley all getting the Camera Obscura treatment), a session recorded in New York for The Wild Honey Pie and two remixes (by Jim Noir and Richard Hawley respectively).  Being released exclusively on Record Store Day in a few weeks (Saturday April 23), Making Money: 4AD B-Sides & Rarities has been pressed on beautiful mint green vinyl and is dedicated to the memory of keyboardist Carey Lander, who sadly passed away with cancer in 2015.

Tracyanne from the band says of the record - “This compilation is particularly poignant for us and for our fans to have one more release that includes Carey’s work.  It’s lovely to make her the cover star one last time.

Nearly ten years old, ‘Making Money’ is a real gem that has grown cult status among Camera Obscura fans since first appearing as a B-side on the limited ‘Break It To You Gently’ double 7” single.  Recorded during the sessions for their last studio album, 2013’s Desire Lines, it’s title riffs on Carey’s wry observation that she saw the band as a “non-profit organisation.”  Hidden no more, ‘Making Money’ is now available digitally and you can watch the video in the player below.  Stream the track on all platforms hhttp://4ad.ffm.to/cameraobscuramakingmoney.
