There's more to add to the Liars upcoming album release of The Sisterworld on March 9th .. the inclusion of a second disc of material featuring remixes from the likes of Thom Yorke, Tunde Adebimpe (TV On The Radio), Bradford Cox (Deerhunter / Atlas Sound), Melvins, Alan Vega (Suicide), Chris & Cosey (Throbbing Gristle) and Blonde Redhead.


That's a serious line up!


“On this project we wanted to help develop and expand the role of the remix, particularly to engage artists less acknowledged for their work in the field. They were asked to 're-interpret' the song by any means necessary and the result is definitely the most exciting collaborative effort we've been involved in," said Angus Andrew when speaking about the release.


Their new album Sisterworld is due on March 9th, 2010, and was written and recorded in Los Angeles by Liars and Tom Biller (Kanye West, Beck, Where The Wild Things Are / Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind soundtracks). It will be the follow up to 2007's self-titled release. According to their label Mute Records, the album gets its inspiration "from fringe characters lured to LA and the resulting subcultures and alternate spaces that they generate." Good times.
