IDLES, Flea, John Frusciante, more to feature on forthcoming Gang of Four tribute album

'The Problem of Leisure' is set for release on May 14

The tracklist for their 20-song Gang of Four tribute album, The Problem of Leisure: A Celebration of Andy Gill and Gang of Four, has been revealed.

The double album, which is set to arrive on May 14th, is set to feature renowned acts like Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea and John Frusciante, IDLES, Helmet, Gary Numan, the Dandy Warhols, and more. The album was conceptualized by Andy Gill prior to his untimely death in February 2020, and it will feature the previously released Morello and Tankian cover of “Natural’s Not in It.”
 

 
Gill’s widow Catherine Mayer put together a small team to complete the album after her husband’s passing. “There was never any doubt in my mind that I should finish what Andy had started,” Mayer says. “He took so much pleasure from hearing from artists which track they had chosen and why. He was delighted by the tracks he lived long enough to hear.”
