Knife video still

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:
