New Liars album gets remixed by Thom Yorke, Melvins

Liars must have earned the respect of nearly every important figure in the music industry. On their upcoming album, Sisterworld (due March 9) they have recruited some major names in music to do remixes for each of the 11 tracks. They have not leaked the names of everyone involved, but so far, we can expect remixes or reinterpretations from Thom Yorke, Blonde Redhead, Tunde Adebimpe (TV on the Radio), Melvins, Bradford Cox (Deerhunter/Atlas Sound), synth punk pioneer Alan Vega (Suicide), and legendary provocateurs Chris & Cosey (Throbbing Gristle).

Liars frontman Angus Andrew talked to Prefix Magazine a bit about the project. “[The collaborators] were asked to ‘re-interpret’ the song by any means necessary and the result is definitely the most exciting collaborative effort we’ve been involved in,” he said.

The remix album will be part of an expanded edition of Sisterworld, which is a two-disc set (disc one will be the main Sisterworld album, and disc two will be the remix disc). They will release a single on February 16 called “Scissor,” which you can download here from the Liars website.
