Beady Eye cover 'Blue Moon' to launch new Man City kit

Friday 15 July, 2011

Beady Eye have covered the Elvis classic 'Blue Moon' to help launch the new Manchester City football kit made by Umbro.

The new kit features a soundwave graphic across the front which was taken from a 19 second recording of the club's fans singing 'Blue Moon'.

Liam said, "I've been a City fan since I was a kid so to be involved with the launch of a new kit is colossal. Manchester City fans are known for having a lot of style and the new shirt looks mega. I love the soundwave idea and the Mod-inspired collar looks proper smart.

'Blue Moon is a top tune and has been City's song for as long as I can remember. It's been covered by loads of people but the only good one until now was the one Elvis did. I hope the fans buzz off our version and sing along to it at the stadium.'

To celebrate the launch Beady Eye have joined up with director Charlie Lightening to record a video for their version of 'Blue Moon' which segues into their new single 'The Beat Goes On'. You can view the video here or at the Umbro YouTube channel HERE!

Beady Eye's new single The Beat Goes On' is out on Monday and will be available to buy from their official store HERE! and iTunes.
