Nicolas Jaar and Weasel Walter have released a remix of singer and poet Lydia Lunch’s 1990 spoken word piece ‘Why, Why Was I Born an American’ that they’ve titled ‘American Invasion’.
The original track appears on Lunch’s ‘Conspiracy of Women’ album which, as pointed out by Pitchfork, is due to be reissued on Jaar’s imprint Other People. The remix will feature on the new release and is currently available to stream via otherpeople.net.
The ‘Conspiracy of Women’ reissue tracklist is:
‘i Just Got Back From Los Angeles’
‘Why, Why Was I Born an American’
‘American Invasion (Weasel Walter and Nicolas Jaar Remix)’
Just this week Jaar released the 12-inch ‘Nymphs II’, featuring material that he has been working on in the four years since he put out his debut album ‘Space Is Only Noise’. The electronic musician only confirmed the record last month, and the whole thing can be streamed via YouTube. Click below to listen.
