Listen to Kelsey Lu’s reimagining of Ever New.

Beverly Glenn-Copeland has today (14 July) announced a new Keyboard Fantasies remix album. The new release, entitled Keyboard Fantasies Reimagined, will be released on 10 December via Transgressive. It leads with a new reimagining from former Crack Magazine cover star Kelsey Lu, who takes on the track Ever New. The rest of the project’s remixers and contributors are yet to be announced.

“I feel so honoured and completely heart struck to have been able to dive further into the fabric of Glenn’s music,” says Lu in a new statement. “Especially Ever New, which is a song that when I first heard it, sprung up emotions of grace, hope and care within the ever-evolving cycles of growth, so that’s what I tried to bring into the making of this reimagining as well.” 

The project follows the 2021 reissue of the American-Canadian composer and artist’s 1986 seminal full-length, which was shared earlier this year to mark the 35th anniversary of Keyboard Fantasies. Last year, the artist also shared a career-spanning anthology entitled Transmissions: The Music of Beverly Glenn-Copeland. It formed Glenn-Copeland’s first new release since 2004.

Last month, we hosted a screening of the documentary Keyboard Fantasies: The Beverly Glenn-Copeland Story. The screening was free to Supporters, and the next one is Ryuichi Sakamoto: Coda. Sign up to be a Supporter and access upcoming screenings.
