The new remix features on an upcoming tribute album in celebration of the late Andy Gill.
Massive Attack’s Robert “3D” Del Naja has remixed Gang of Four’s 2015 track Where the Nightingale Sings. The new ‘Redux’ version features additional bass and vocals from London-based duo Nova Twins. It was worked on by Gang of Four’s Andy Gill in collaboration with 3D.
The remix is taken from a forthcoming tribute album in honour of Gill, who died early last year. The new project is titled The Problem of Leisure: A Celebration of Andy Gill and Gang of Four and was originally intended to celebrate Gang of Four’s 40th anniversary. However, it later evolved into a tribute project following Gill’s passing.
The album also features covers from the likes of IDLES, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea and John Frusciante, La Roux, Warpaint and more.
The Problem of Leisure: A Celebration of Andy Gill and Gang of Four is out on 14 May. The album artwork was created by artist Damien Hirst, who’s also a “longterm Gang of Four aficionado”.
