Sleigh Bells have remixed ‘Chloroform’ by Phoenix. Scroll down to hear the track now.

The track appears on Phoenix’s 2013 album ‘Bankrupt!’ with Sleigh Bells remix substituting Thomas Mars’ original vocals in place of new words by Alexis Krauss. The track is available to download for free now and comes ahead of the release of Sleigh Bells new album ‘Bitter Rivals’ – which is set for release on October 7.

Derek Miller of Sleigh Bells has revealed that the band’s new album ‘Bitter Rivals’ is a celebration of him coming to terms with his father’s death. Speaking to NME in a new interview in this week’s issue, available digitally and on newsstands now, the guitarist confides that he has found it difficult to cope following the loss of his father and his mother being diagnosed with cancer, which influenced their second LP ‘Reign Of Terror’.

Sleigh Bells previously debuted the track ‘You Don’t Get Me Twice’ from the new LP. Speaking about the album previously, Miller said it would be markedly different from ‘Reign Of Terror’, coming from a “different headspace, just more up and positive… not as downer”. He added: “It’s not as dark… I kind of worked through a lot of difficult stuff on the last record.”
