· After a rip-roaring tour of the US with his live band at the end of 2011, a healthy wedge of new remixes under his belt for the likes of David Lynch, The Dø, The Drums and M83, Copenhagen‘s Anders Trentemøller remains in the spotlight. · Last year also saw the release of ‘Reworked / Remixed‘, a must-have double CD release featuring some of the inspired producer‘s favourite remixes, and his pick from remixes of his music by other artists. The release was preceded by the mixed-media collaboration with Efterklang in September 2011, where both artists remixed each other‘s songs in the ‘Raincoats vs Tide‘ EP. · Now we are excited to announce the next chapter of that project, with a special Trentemøller version of Gun Club‘s ‘My Dreams‘, featuring the sultry vocal talents of Marie Fisker. With a heavy electronic dub and slow-burning tempo, their ingenious re-working takes pride of place on a lovely 7‘‘ record, backed with a haunting live acoustic version. · Marie Fisker, who ist part of Trentemøller’s live band, provides the urging, aching vocals as Trentemøller crafts a slowly thumping and evolving moment of wonder, inspired by the dramatic synth-echoes of new wave and all things underground in the 80s. · ‚You cannot take my dreams, you cannot take and steal from this body‘ Fisker hauntingly cries, as we get drawn into this melancholic and beautiful story for modern times. · A charming acoustic version features as a partner to the full-bodied original, where we hear yet another side to the song - the pairing of gifted song writing and Fisker‘s sensitive vocal talents stand out in a hair-raising live performance. · Limited to 500 copies for the UK and Eire.
