In honour of the one year anniversary of her debut solo album Jamie, Alabama Shakes frontwoman Brittany Howard has announced a new remix collection that sees artists adding their own twists to her music.
As part of the announcement, Howard has shared EARTHGANG’s remix of Howard’s “Goat Head,” and the band aims to turn the song “into a bold anthem for 2020’s social justice movement,” according to a press release. “Songs like these help us make sense of all the craziness in the world at times,” EARTHGANG explain. “Her song ‘Goat Head,’ dealing with her Black experience in America and The World, resonated the loudest at this time.”
Bon Iver also remixed “Short and Sweet” alongside Wye Oak’s Jenn Wasner and trumpeter CJ Camerieri. “Brittany is a truly singular artist; so much power and musicality. This album speaks to so many people, including us,” Vernon explains.
