The project was first hinted at last month when Virginia Beach hip hop superstar Pusha T a nd LA synth pop polymath Twin Shadow both joined alt-J for a surprise performance of In Cold Blood on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, before swiftly releasing the studio version of the collaboration. “ 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.”
A second track is debuted today, a new version of Deadcrush reworked by legendary producer The Alchemist and Latin American production powerhouse Trooko, and featuring the unmistakable vocals of hip hop iconoclast Danny Brown. Deadcrush (feat. Danny Brown) (Alchemist x Trooko Version) is available to stream and download everywhere and as an instant-grat now.
