The Knife – “Without You My Life Would Be Boring (Shaken-Up Version)” Video

By Chris DeVille / May 20, 2014 - 12:15 pm

The Knife have altered many of their songs for the wildly theatrical stage show they’ve been touring through North America, and now those reworkings will be available on record. A mini-album called Shaken-Up Versions compiles new versions of songs from throughout the group’s discography. To kick things off, director Bitte Anderson has contributed a wonderful video for the “shaken-up version” of Shaking The Habitual track “Without You My Life Would Be Boring.” It features red-clad musicians and dancers tossing around a ball of energy that inspires everyone in a hospital waiting room to joyously cut loose. Watch it!

Shaken-Up Versions will be out digitally on 6/17 via Rabid/Brille/Mute, with vinyl and CD editions to follow later this summer. Pre-order the digital version here. A digital-only “Without You My Life Would Be Boring” remix EP is out today; get it here. Here’s the Shaken-Up Versions tracklist:
