King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard announce ‘Butterfly 3001’ remix album
King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard have announced a full album of remixed tracks from their latest album, ‘Butterfly 3000’.
Scheduled for release January 21, ‘Butterfly 3001’ features contributions from Flaming Lips, DJ Shadow, Peaches and more, as well as Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith and fellow Australian Confidence Man on the digital edition. Pre-orders are available now.
To coincide with the announcement, the psych-rock group shared two tracks from the LP; a remix of ‘Butterfly 3000’ by Peaches and a dub version ‘Shanghai’ by The Scientist. Listen to both below:
âWe’ve been delaying creating a remix album for a long time,â said the band’s Joey Walker in an accompanying statement. âMaybe it was conscious, maybe not. But it is happening now.
âThat’s not to say Butterfly 3000 makes the most sense to remix. It may sound obvious, but it is not. Yes it is electronic. But a refrigerator too. Have you tried dancing on Butterfly? It’s hard. It ties your laces together. It is duplicate in its simplicity.
âBut Butterfly 3001 develops that. It deflects and erases too. We are honored that such esteemed people are working on these songs. We hope you like this album as much as we do. See you at DA CLUB !!! â
‘Butterfly 3000’ arrived in June of this year with no single to come before it. Their 18th studio album overall, this was their second for 2021, after “LW” in February.
‘Butterfly 3000’ was released without a single, but every track on the album received a music video after it arrived. These included the group exploring their Melbourne home in the “Yours” music video, and pairing “Interior People” with animated Miyazaki-inspired visuals.
Last month King Gizzard announced a massive world tour for 2022. Starting in March, the race will include dates in Europe, the UK, and North and South America.
