The new rework of ‘Tales From The Trash Stratum’ is one of four bonus tracks being released as part of a new Blu-ray edition of the producer’s ninth studio album, ‘Magic Oneohtrix Point Never’, which is due to arrive in October.
The expanded edition of the album will also contain the previously released reimagining of ‘Nothing’s Special’ featuring Rosalía and two remixes of ‘Lost But Never Alone’ from PC Music’s A.G. Cook and Forced Smile.
Sixteen music videos from across OPN’s career will be included on the Blu-ray disc, including his clip of ‘The Pure And The Damned’ featuring Robert Pattinson, Benny Safdie and Iggy Pop.
Earlier this year, Oneohtrix Point Never joined The Weeknd for his rain-soaked remote performance at the BRIT Awards 2021. The producer also served as the musical director for The Weeknd’s Super Bowl Halftime Show back in February.
It was the latest in a number of collaborations between the two artists. The Weeknd is credited as a co-executive producer on ‘Magic Oneohtrix Point Never’, while Lopatin worked on the R&B star’s latest album ‘After Hours’.
