Here is our brand new double A-side vinyl single Good Loving/I'm Getting Tired.

On the groovy Good Loving (originally recorded by The Rising Sun in 1973) our singer Yvonne handles the lead vocals with the brilliance that long time fans of That Driving Beat have come to expect. On the equally catchy I'm Getting Tired (originally recorded by The Carlettes) back-up singer Cecilia takes a step forward, grabs the mic and delivers a perfect performance.

Available on vinyl and digitally on our 5 track EP. Thanks to Stefan, Henrik and Rikard at AMTY Records!

Thanks also to graphic designer Fredrik Snellman for creating the beautiful sleeve design.

Keep The Faith! Love, That Driving Beat.
