THE HORRORS release deluxe box-set of singles / remixes from Skying [STREAM ALBUM]

THE HORRORS have released / are releasing a very special, limited edition deluxe box-set of the singles and videos from Skying – calling it Higher.

We have the album stream here for your ear-pleasures…

The set includes covers, reworkings and remixes from Andrew Weatherall, Seahawks, Connan Mockasin and more.

“One of the pleasures of remixing is seeing how other people construct their music. Re-arranging the bricks in The Horrors wall of sound was a particular joy.” Andrew Weatherall

And the digital release of Higher is already on iTunes now but the physical release, due in March 2013 is looking like it will be amazing. The end of the bloody world had better not happen before then. Seriously, I’ll be really f**ked off if I miss out on this box-set just because of the end of civilization on Earth happens. Just look…

“We were driving through the deserts of California when we hatched the plan to release a boxed set of the singles from Skying, unaware that it would balloon into the monster that it did. We started off small, just one version per single. However, through chance encounters and wanting to involve more people whose music excited us, the box soon grew into an impressive collection of sonic tapestries and hypnotic grooves and it became apparent that this was no longer about the singles. It was now about this new music which had used the different elements of Skying as a springboard to other ideas. We encouraged everyone involved to be as obtuse as possible, to get as far away from the original source material as they could. The results are stunning, and I think it’s just a shame we couldn’t have done more.”
Tom Furse, The Horrors

The box set features an eclectic collection of musicians, DJs and producers from widely contrasting genres but all fans and friends of The Horrors:- Connan Mockasin, Seahawks, Andrew Weatherall, Blanck Mass, Peaking Lights, Cherrystones, Chris Watson, Daniel Avery, JTC and Andy Blake.
