Warpaint To Reissue Debut Album With EPBy Craig Smith • Aug 17th, 2011 • Category: News
Warpaint are to release live favourite “Billie Holiday” as their next single on September 19. The track has been mixed by Pulp bassist Steve Mackey and is a complete re-working of the original version from their debut EP Exquisite Corpse, produced by John Frusciante (ex-Red Hot Chili Peppers).
Warpaint’s record label Rough Trade explained, “It was felt that the single did not get enough ears the first time around, and as it’s always been a band favourite it only seems right to re-release it now that they are a little more well known”. The track will appear on a deluxe reissue of debut album The Fool (also out on September 19) packaged together with the EP.
With the girls coming to the end of touring for the album, and talk of the writing and recording their follow-up under way, hopefully something new from the Warpaint camp will appear before the end of the year (wishful thinking?). Until then, you can stream the Steve Mackey mix of “Billie Holiday” below, while the full tracklisting for The Fool Deluxe Edition looks like this…
“Set Your Arms Down”
