Downtown Boys have shared their cover of the Selena track Fotos y Recuerdos.

The song is the first new offering to emerge from the band since the release of 'Cost of Living', the follow up to 2015's 'Full Communism', last year. In a statement, they said:

"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."

Explaining the image that accompanies the song, vocalist Victoria Ruiz said:

"The image on the video is one of my grandma's old photos. My grandpa, who passed as far too young an age, is poking through the water. My grandma doesn't read or write, so it's through her photos and her memories in which so much lives on. This song is for her."

In 2017 we spoke with Ruiz and guitarist Joey La Neve DeFrancesco about their latest record. Head here to check out the chat.
