Published Oct 21, 2014The Knife have called it quits, but before the boundary-pushing Swedish duo ride off into the sunset, they will issue their Shaken-Up Versions mini-album on CD and vinyl. These will come out on December 9 on Mute.
This follows the digital release of the EP earlier this year. At that time, the Knife promised that the physical versions would follow later in the year, but we didn't have a firm date until now.
As with the prior digital release, the CD and LP versions include eight reworked versions of previously released Knife cuts. This includes new adaptations of songs from all four of the band's studio albums.
Scroll past the tracklist to watch a video for the Shaken-Up take on "Without You My Life Would Be Boring." The YouTube playlist also includes preview edits of a number of tracks from the album.
Before Shaken-Up Versions arrives on shelves, the Knife will tour Europe this fall. See their farewell schedule below the EP tracklist.
