Super Furry Animals‘ remix of THE BEATLES is being played out by club DJs and will be released later this year.
The track – which nme.com revealed details of way back in May and said then sounded like The Chemical Brothers – is set to be released on an album later this year, but is already being sent out as a white label to trendy nightspots around the UK under the name Sound Collage.
It’s a Furries remix of various outtakes and studio conversations The Beatles recorded in the ’60s, many of which have never been heard before, woven in with sounds of Liverpool.
As nme.com revealed earlier this year, the unlikely union came about after Sir Paul met the Furries at the NME Brat Awards in January this year.
The piece, which The Sun today reports is called ‘Free Now’, was put together as part of an hour-long piece of music called ‘Plastic Beatle’ for an art exhibition called About Collage currently on at the Liverpool Tate gallery and curated by artist and former Beatles collaborator Peter Blake.
As nme.com reported previously, the gallery had been inundated with requests from the public to buy the music, and now the soundtrack to the entire exhibition is to be released.
Paul is reported as telling The Sun: “It’s a new little piece of Beatles. ‘Free Now’ is an outbreak from my normal stuff…it’s more underground than what you usually hear from me but I like to be free enough to do this sort of thing.”
About Collage is on until March 2001.
