In celebration of their 20th anniversary as a band, The Body have announced a special limited-edition collaborative album Remixed, out 11 October. Emblematic of duo Lee Buford and Chip King’s prolific careers as collaborators, including albums with ThouFull of HellUniformThe Haxan CloakThe Assembly of Light Choir and more, Remixed features tracks from throughout The Body’s discography reimagined by longtime friends, artists who The Body have influenced or been influenced by, and artists with whom the band share a mutual respect.

Remixes by Moss of Aura (Future Island’s Gerrit Welmers) and Peter Rehberg (KTLPita) stand as a testament to The Body’s reputation as innovators across genres. It comes as no surprise that The Body would include remixes by friends from around the globe whom they’ve toured with like sometimes live The Body member OAAWhitehorse’sDave Coen (Sow Discord), and Andrew Nolan (Intensive Care). Buford explains how humbled they were to include tracks reworked by Mark Solotroff (Anatomy of HabitBloodyminded), and Moor Mother: “Mark is a legend and has been a longtime friend. He’s a total anomaly because he’s been doing this for decades and still is extremely enthusiastic about music. We’re huge fans of Moor Mother, and she’s making some of the most original music nowadays. She’s like us in that she has all these disparate influences in her music, but she pulls it off so seamlessly.”

On including ContainerSeth Manchester (who engineers all of The Body’s albums at Machines With Magnets), and Lingua Ignota, Buford says: “I stand by my assertion that Providence and Providence-related music is the best. Ren [Schofield] is a longtime Providence head just like us. Seth is too humble for his own good. He’s a true genius and the best person. It’s like a vacation recording with him. We met Kristin [Hayter] when we went back to record and play a show there, we became friends immediately and have become best friends since then. She’s a true legend. It’s always great to make music with her and to just hang with her!”
