Dan Mangan has shared "All My People (Elsewhere Version)," a reimagined version of the track originally featured on his sixth album, Being Somewhere.

While the original track is atmospheric at times, it is grounded by a persistent percussive beat. The "Elsewhere Version" is stripped of all that, lending a new airy, hypnotic quality to the track that feels both intimate and distant at the same time.

"I didn't start with any particular plan," said Mangan in a press statement. "I just started deconstructing the song and exploring where else it might like to be constructed."

The indie-pop maestro began originally writing the track during the height of lockdowns, when social distancing was still mandatory, and social gatherings were strongly discouraged.

"Before it was even a real thing, it had lived several lives. My 40th birthday was looming in the distance. I pictured a party. This same home, full of people laughing. I pictured a huge pileup of shoes by the front door. Coats laid on the bed. It was one weird dream away," said Mangan.
