Broadcast singer Trish Keenan unexpectedly died in January 2011 from complications with pneumonia after contracting swine flu virus H1N1 while touring Australia. At the time of her passing Broadcast was a duo with James Cargill, also her romantic partner. Today is Keenan’s birthday (she would’ve been 49) and in honor of that Cargill has shared a previously unreleased demo, “Tunnel View,” that features the vocals of Keenan. Listen to it below.

In an exclusive interview with Under the Radar in November 2011, Cargill told us he was working on a new Broadcast album with vocals and music worked on before Keenan’s passing. “Trish left a lot of tapes, four-tracks and stuff, and I’ve been going through those,” Cargill said. “It’s difficult, and I’m connected to it at the same time. It’s wonderful, but I’m also feeling a sense of loss.” The album has yet to surface, but perhaps this demo indicates Cargill is still working on it.
