Young Galaxy Share Free Remix Album, Unveil 'Shapeshifting Deluxe Edition'

Young Galaxy Share Free Remix Album, Unveil 'Shapeshifting Deluxe Edition'
Young Galaxy's most recent album, Shapeshifting, bore the distinct stamp of Studio's Dan Lissvik, who produced the album from afar and gave the 11 songs his synth-heavy touch. Soon, fans will be able to get a idea of what Shapeshifting might have sounded like without the Swedish electronic whiz, since the band have announced a Deluxe Edition of the album that includes some of the original versions of the tracks. On top of that, it's being preceded by a remix album.

The deluxe edition of Shapeshifting arrives digitally on December 13 and includes four bonus tracks. "Blown Minded," "Phantoms," "B.S.E." and "Shapeshifting" each appear in their original form.

As for the remix album, it's called Versus and finds Young Galaxy remixing a number of songs from some notable artists. Among the acts who receive the remix treatment here are Handsome Furs, Junior Boys, Grimes and Arkells, plus two songs by Austra.
