My Morning Jacket kicked off the American leg of their “Spontaneous Curation Series” tour last night in Salt Lake City, and fans created quite a setlist. To celebrate the series, the band has released the first remix from its forthcoming Outta My System: Remixez Y Friendz EP. Chillwave institutor Washed Out forgoes all of the urgency of the original Circuital cut, leaving a spacey, twinkling tune with a soft beat. Most of the lyrics are also gone, replaced by spoken-word interludes ruminating on belief and perception. The mood certainly fits when Jim James sings, “They told me not to smoke drugs / but I wouldn’t listen.” Check it out below.
The Outta My System Remixez Y Friendz EP is due out digitally August 7th and features remixes from Washed Out and Dave Sitek, as well as an “Alternate Universe” version and their recent single “Friends Again”.
