8x GRAMMY® Award-nominated Atlantic recording group Death Cab for Cutie today release a remix of “I Dreamt We Spoke Again,” courtesy of acclaimed Chicago-based DJ and production duo Louis the Child. The original track comes off the band’s critically acclaimed ninth studio album Thank You For Today, released last August.
Introducing the flip to fans, Louis the Child say: "This is our new remix of ‘I Dreamt We Spoke Again’ by Death Cab for Cutie. You may listen using your electronic devices and wireless fidelity connection. Volume level 11 recommended."
Of the rework, Death Cab for Cutie explain: “‘I Dreamt We Spoke Again’ began as a very muted, low-key ghost of a song, but ended up being one of the more dance-oriented tracks that this band has attempted - though in a very throwback, nostalgic sense. So, it was a treat to turn it over to Louis the Child and have them apply all of the bells and whistles of 2019 dance music production to it.”
Today’s release follows another rework of the track from legendary Jamaican dub/dancehall legend Scientist (listen here), as well as a remix of “Northern Lights” from acclaimed Australian electronic producer Japanese Wallpaper (listen here).
This past weekend, Death Cab co-curated and headlined a benefit with ODESZA at their shared alma mater – Western Washington State. Billed “Double Major,” the show was a homecoming for both bands, having formed in Bellingham when their members were students. In appreciation for the school and the city of Bellingham, net proceeds from the show were donated to WWU’s Alumni Association Scholarship Endowment. Additional info here.
Next month, they will embark on their highly anticipated summer tour, including stops at North America’s most iconic venues – from New York’s Forest Hills to LA’s Hollywood Bowl to an already sold out night at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Across various dates, support on the tour will come from Jenny Lewis, Lala Lala, Mitski, and Car Seat Headrest
