After Bon Iver and EARTHGANG have remixed some Jaime tracks, Michael Kiwanuka has mixed Alabama Shakes frontwoman Brittany Howard’s “13th Century Metal.”
“I was so excited to get to work on this project as I’ve always been a big fan of Brittany’s music,” Kiwanuka explains. “Knowing this particular track and being such a fan of her voice, I wanted to not meddle with her voice, and then to make it front and centre. She sounds so victorious when she sings and speaks, so the music I made was governed by that.”
The track, which was originally from Howard’s five time Grammy-nominated album Jaime, marks Kiwanuka’s first mix for another artist.
