Vocal for OMD cover "Too late" - Birmingham

Casting complete. Applications are now closed.

We are Britstar, an electronic pop duo. One member is based in the Midlands, the other in Hampshire. We have made two original albums in 2000 and 2005.

We have made two OMD covers albums in 2003 and 2011.

We need a good vocal for "Too late" preferably a male tenor or female.

Here are the lyrics

Have you heard about the hollow man? Too frightened so he turned and ran From the vision that he cherished so Couldn't see it, so he let it go

Everybody has a secret sin But everybody needs a chance to win Anyone could see, I'm a man That's sad and broken by the things I've done

But now I'm sorry that I said goodbye And I'm sorry 'cause it's me that's crying I never finished what I started to And I'm just so sorry that I'm hurting you

But it's too late for us to just be friends And too late for anything but the end And too many dreams fell through our hands And it's just too late to understand

Now I'll never make a new beginning And I'll never stop the pain from winning Nothing matters to me anymore now Well, I've lost the things I was fighting for

And now I'm sorry that the dreams are gone And I'm sorry 'cause I'm not the one Who comes running when you need me so 'Cause I'm the fool that's let you go

But it's too late for us to just be friends And too late for anything but the end And too many dreams fell through our hands And it's just too late to understand

But it's too late for us to just be friends And too late for anything but the end And too many dreams fell through our hands And it's just too late to understand

But it's too late for us to just be friends And too late for anything but the end And too many dreams fell through our hands And it's just too late to understand
But it's too late, it's too late, it's too late

Feel free to pitch it up or down if needed. You must follow the melody but I'm not so bothered about precisely matching the original's timing.

If you are interested simply send a link to your clean vocal. Simple!

One thing to note about this cover. The arrangement is the same as the original, except at 2.20 I had this idea to break into Unchained melody as the chords are the same - so at the moment there is a guide melody here -

Oh, my love, my darling
I've hungered for your touch
A long, lonely time
And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?
