Published Oct 05, 2015On November 6, Ride will reissue their classic 1991 album Nowhere in an expanded edition called Nowhere25. To help spread the word, they've just rolled out a version of "Vapour Trail" that has been mixed by the Cure's Robert Smith.
It's best to consider this an alternate mix rather than a proper "remix," since it isn't particularly different from the original version. Smith puts some echo on the vocals and gives it a significantly longer outro before the eventual fade-out, but other than that, this is fairly true to the version that Ride fans are used to. Rather amusingly, it's referred to as a "Trail Mix."
This mix doesn't actually appear on the Nowhere25 set. Hear it below [via Pitchfork].
