Over the years, Damon Albarn and XL Recordings boss Richard Russell have worked together a bunch of times; most prominently, they co-produced Bobby Womack’s 2012 album The Bravest Man In The Universe. Albarn will release the new solo album Everyday Robots this spring, and Russell produced it, putting together all the instrumentation. And now he’s remixed the album’s title track, calling it the “Richard’s Robotic Reduction Remix.” Russell has removed just about every trace of Albarn’s voice and turned the song into a moody instrumental electronic piece, building and mutating the groove of the original. Listen to it below.
Everyday Robots is out 4/29 on XL.
