The indie trio Alt-J announce their REDUXER album, which sees Alt-J pay homage to hip-hop by bringing on artists to rework their RELAXER tracks.
Today they've announced new album REDUXER, which will see the tracks from RELAXER reworked by hip-hop artists and renowned producers.
REDUXER was born out of a surprise collaboration with Pusha T and Twin Shadow on the The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, later leading to their studio version of "In Cold Blood".
Speaking about their reasons behind REDUXER, Alt-J explain, “It's no secret that we love and are influenced by hip-hop, and it's always been a dream of ours to work with hip-hop artists in reimagining our music,” the band explained. “With REDUXER that dream has come true. We couldn't be happier with the results. This album is truly global, featuring rappers and producers from all over the world. After a very long time in the making, we are stoked to share it with you all.”
Alt-J wil embark on a UK tour in October, including a stop at London's Royal Albert Hall on 29 October. Find more details.
