Atlanta’s Manchester Orchestra pay tribute to Scott Hutchison with Frightened Rabbit cover

Atlanta Manchester Orchestra have paid tribute to their friend Scott Hutchison by recorded and released a cover of Frightened Rabbit’s ‘My Backwards Walk’.

It was with a heavy heart that Far Out reported the news that the body found in relation to Scott Hutchison’s disappearance was confirmed as the Frightened Rabbits singer.

Having been last seen on CCTV footage after visiting the nearby Dakota Hotel, fears grew for the 36-year-old when he reported missing in the early hours of Wednesday after he posted a string of worrying Tweets on social media.

Having collaborated a number of times with Hutchison, most recognisably on the Manchester Orchestra track ‘Architect, the band felt drawn to putting together a rendition of Frightened Rabbit’s ‘My Backwards Walk’ in tribute.

Posting the track on Twitter, Manchester Orchestra wrote: “A week ago we lost a dear friend, we thought the best way to honour him was the only way we know how, to play one of his many incredible songs. much love, MO.”
