Primal Scream releases never-before-seen Andrew Weatherall remix E! News UK
Primal Scream has shared an unreleased remix of “Shine Like Stars” by the late Andrew Weatherall.
The famous DJ and producer – who sadly died of pulmonary embolism at the age of 56 in February 2020 – was best known for his work on Bobby Gillespie and the iconic 1991 album “Screamadelica”.
And ahead of the release of three 30th anniversary editions of the LP, the band shared the never-before-seen gem.
Bobby said of his collaboration with Andy in 1991: “It’s the combination of Andy and ourselves that is just great. He can take that quintessential element of one of our songs and make it really focused. He has vision and inspiration, whereas nowadays most producers are just glorified engineers.
The remix and its instrumental functionality on the upcoming 10-disc Singles Box ‘Screamadelica’, released on September 17th.
On the same day, the first ‘Screamadelica’ image disc, featuring the artwork pressed onto double vinyl, will also be available.
Plus, fans can get their hands on the never-before-seen “Demodelica” collection on October 15, including first demos and mixes.
The release of the remix comes after Primal Scream backed Liam Gallagher during his free concert for NHS workers at the O2 Arena in London earlier this week.
Meanwhile, frontman Bobby recently teamed up with Savages’ Jehnny Beth on their joint LP “Utopian Ashes”.
The 59-year-old “Loaded” hitmaker recently insisted that the album is not a “breaking record” because it is for “pussies.”
He explains: “Sometimes it is good to do a work, to distribute it to the world and not to explain everything.
“These days I’ve read so many interviews with singers who say, ‘Oh, I had a terrible breakup last year, so I wrote a record about it.’ How old are you, 29 years old? We do not care? To move on …
“It’s not a breaking record.
“Breaking up is for cats.” It’s a record about the struggle to stay together. Why get upset that the dishwasher isn’t loaded properly? It doesn’t really matter, but these little details add up and you can lose your connection. It’s a heroic thing to make a commitment to each other, to live together, to have children, to start a home. It is a heroic idea to hold on to the idea of love.
