Just before Christmas the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s Nick Zinner flew into Reykjavík for an intensive studio session with the band from which emerged a re-tooled version of Ballerina in the Rain, complete with backing vocals from Icelandic wonder dj. flugvél og geimskip and an accompanying remix from super-fan, Damon Albarn. The President Bongo (recently ex- of Gus Gus) remix of Northern Gannett completes the package – evoking nothing less than the sound of Sheffield, 1980. It will be released as a single on 11th March (the original versions of Ballerina in the Rain and Northern Gannett can be found on their Few More Days to Go debut album, out now).
released March 11, 2016
