1. Forbidden Colours (Theme from Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence)

3. Forbidden Colours (early instrumental mix)
4. Forbidden (1996)
A 2-song digital single. Black Tape for a Blue Girl presents their first new recording since 2009’s 10 Neurotics: a lush cover of “Forbidden Colours” (theme from the 1985 David Bowie film, Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence written by David Sylvian / Ryuichi Sakamoto). It’s a haunting, neo-classical track in the vein of their Remnants of a Deeper Purity album, with lush cello from Unwoman.
“Forbidden Colours” also appears on the Ornamental 2012 Projekt Holiday release.
Note that the Bandcamp version has two extra tracks not available at iTunes.
