Mercury Prize-nominees Jockstrap announce the forthcoming album alongside the lead single, "Red Eye" (feat. IAN STARR).

I<3UQTINVU – I Love You Cutie, I Envy You – is the fully remixed version of Jockstrap's Mercury Prize shortlisted 2022 album, I Love You Jennifer B.

The remix record is the brainchild of Taylor Skye, who was making multiple versions of the album’s original tracklisting to stay inspired during the writing of I Love You Jennifer B. The guest features on the remix record range from Ersatz, who inspired Skye to make music many years ago to IAN STARR who he only connected with online a few months ago.

Commenting on "Red Eye", collaborator IAN STARR adds: "I love making songs that push the limits of my vocality and energy, and I went all-out in efforts to craft the craziest performance possible on "Red Eye". Whenever I write a song, I always have the live audience in mind; performing this at my first festival with Jockstrap made me feel really great about the result! The crowd’s energy felt amazing and I’m so excited to perform it for everyone who comes to the US tour!"

STARR also performs in the accompanying video, shot by Liam Noonan, Starr, and Jockstrap's Georgia Ellery and Skye at Connect Festival.

Skye explains more about I<3UQTINVU, saying, “Some of these remixes are almost three years old and some are only six months old. I made most of them really quickly, in a day or so. It keeps me sane to do this whilst mixing the album. I don't really remember making them. It's like eating too much and then throwing up and this is what comes out. It's a weird feeling but also really fun. I felt very happy making some of this music and live it will be quite the show.”

I<3UQTINVU is set for release on 3 November via Rough Trade Records, and will be available on standard black vinyl and on limited edition red vinyl, complete with a rose-perfumed inner sleeve. Pre-orders are available now.
