Published Sep 17, 2020A year out from the release of Brittany Howard's solo debut, Jaime, two songs from the record have been treated to new remixes by Bon Iver and EarthGang.
Reworks of "Short and Sweet" and "Goat Head" arrive as the first of two in a series of forthcoming remixes taken from the 2019 album. In a post, Howard shared the news, saying she's "grateful for the magic these artists bring to our world."
Bon Iver's Justin Vernon shared a statement of his own:
Brittany is a truly singular artist; so much power and musicality. This album speaks to so many people, including us. To have a chance to recreate "Short and Sweet" in our own image with long-time collaborators Jenn Wasner and CJ Camerieri, was both an honour and almost too much of a privilege.
"We've been big fans of Brittany and Alabama Shakes so this is a dream come true," EarthGang added. "Songs like these help us make sense of all the craziness in the world at times. Her song 'Goat Head,' dealing with her black experience in America and the World, resonated the loudest at this time. Just thankful to be able to give the world our medicine and heal the people."
Jaime was released last year, which is also when Bon Iver's i,i and EarthGang's Mirrorland arrived.
Listen to both remixes below, and stay tuned for more to come.
