Ahead of their European tour, Downtown Boys have shared their cover of “Fotos Y Recuerdos”. Originally recorded by The Pretenders as “Back in the Chain Gang,” the song was then covered – with Spanish lyrics – and further popularized by the late Tejano queen, Selena.

Downtown Boys, in a group statement, say of the track: “Fotos y recuerdos translates to photos and memories. The original singer of this version of song, Selena Quintanilla, reminds us that, while it often feels like history repeats itself, our mystic chords of memories – even memories of thoughts – become part our protection. Our most gracious fotos and recuerdos break history repeating itself by being endless. And yours can be for you and no one else.”

“Fotos Y Recuerdos” was recorded during the Cost of Living recording sessions with Guy Picciotto and Greg Norman at Electrical Audio in Chicago.

Downtown Boys head back to Europe next week, in support of Cost of Living. The dates span June 1st in Düdingen, Switzerland at Bad Bonn Kilbi Festival through June 9th at Hilavrenbeek, Netherlands’ Best Kept Secret Festival.
