A Stitch in Time was the second EP released by The Twilight Singers and was first released on iTunes on October 10, 2006. Hard copies were later released in the UK on December 4, 2006 and in the US on January 23, 2007.

A Stitch in Time features guest appearances by the great Mark Lanegan and Joseph Arthur and includes some great covers including “Live with Me”, a Massive Attack cover, and “Flashback”, a Fat Freddys Drop cover.

When former Screaming Trees frontman Mark Lanegan joined The Twilight Singers for the August 06 leg of their European tour, Kerrang Magazine declared the London show at The Scala felt like “a wickedly illicit hit from a masterfully controlled substance.”

Here we see that very special chemistry first laid down on record with the release of this EP, on One Little Indian U.S. exclusively through iTunes.

Leading with the showstopping moment from their recent tour, the hypnotic cover of Massive Attack’s “Live With Me” the five track EP not only features the Twilight Singers alongside Lanegan, but guests Joseph Arthur and Rick McCollum from Greg Dulli’s former group, The Afghan Whigs.

SPIN Magazine named “Live With Me” Number 1 on their “Songs You Need To Download Now!” list in 2006.

“Live With Me” was one of two new tracks featured on Massive Attack’s 2006 greatest hits compilation “Collected”. Dulli has long been recognized for bringing eclectic influences to his live performances since his Afghan Whigs days when, as noted by Q Magazine recently, “their sound stirred comparisons of The Rolling Stones circa 1971 fused with Prince”.

Other tracks on the EP are “Sublime”, co-written by Dulli and Joseph Arthur, and featuring Arthur on guest vocals, “Flashback”, a cover of New Zealand’s finest high-tek soulsters, Fat Freddy’s Drop and features Mark Lanegan again on vocals, “They Ride”, co-written by Dulli and Rick McCollum, and “The Lure Would Prove Too Much” written by Dulli.

The EP release follows the heavy praise The Twilight Singers received for their latest album, “Powder Burns“, and offers a preview to the highly anticipated collaboration between Dulli and Lanegan, who later recorded an album under the moniker of The Gutter Twins.

Dulli and Lanegan have regularly contributed to each other’s projects since 2000. Lanegan was recently shortlisted for a Mercury Music Prize in the UK for his previous collaboration with Isobel Campbell, “Ballad Of The Broken Seas”.

Additionally,for the first time since parting company in 2001, former Whigs bandmates John Curley, Rick McCollum and Michael Horrigan recently joined forces again with Dulli to record new tracks for an upcoming Rhino retrospective Unbreakable, at Ardent Studios in Memphis,TN with longtime collaborator Jeff Powell.

It was during the last U.S. tour in support of the release of Powder Burns that the Twilight Singers were first joined by Mark Lanegan at an emotional show at One Eyed Jack’s in New Orleans. Both Dulli and Lanegan have strong ties to the city devastated the year before by Hurricane Katrina.
