We're all pretty stoked for Liars' new record, Sisterworld, the band's first full-length since 2007's self-titled. What is stoking us up even more/higher, is that the expanded version of this record will contain work by some of the indieverse's brightest shining stars, believe it or not!
Among the contributors offering their takes and reworkings of the album's tracks are: Thom Yorke, Tunde Adebimpe, Bradford Cox, Chris & Cosey, Alan Vega (who features on a duet...), The Melvins and Blonde Redhead. That is a cast almost as stunning as the film version of Glengarry Glen Ross, you will surely agree.
Angus Andrew, of the band, said of the project:
“On this project we wanted to help develop and expand the role of the remix, particularly to engage artists less acknowledged for their work in the field. They were asked to 're-interpret' the song by any means necessary and the result is definitely the most exciting collaborative effort we've been involved in.”
I'd totally agree, Angus.
The album tracklisting is as follows:
- No Barrier Fun
- Here Comes All The People
- Scarecrows On A Killer Slant
- I Still Can See An Outside World
- Proud Evolution
- Drop Dead
- The Overachievers
- Goodnight Everything
- Too Much, Too Much
If you want to check out mooooooore about Sisterworld, then I'd point you to the proper official website for the album, which probably contains a whole heap of stuff by now. The album is out March 8 through Mute, preceded by a single - 'Scissor' - which hits the shelves on February 15.
