Following the recent release of their best of album Black Gold earlier this fall, and ahead of an extensive 2020 UK/EU tour, today Editors have shared a raw and metallic remix of title track “Black Gold” created by Polish experimental producer Zamilska. Listen to it HERE.

Respected for her difficult to categorize production style that join the dots between techno, noise and electronica, Zamilska’s past releases have picked up support from the likes of Iggy Pop and Tom Ravenscroft on BBC 6MUSIC when not sound-tracking avant-garde short films and documentaries. The Digital Dragons artist and Untuned Records owner now remixes “Black Gold” from the latest Editors album, following a recent rendition from Joe Turner.

Zamilska’s remix of “Black Gold” captures the emotive energy from Tom Smith’s vocals on the original and adds distortion, syncopated synth lines and punchy drum programming while elevating the electronica tempo of the track by chopping up guitar licks for a rhythmically satisfying effect.

From their Mercury Prize shortlisted debut The Back Room, to #1 debuting An End Has A Start, platinum selling In This Light and On This Evening, sprawling, transitional The Weight of Your Love, moody, self-produced In Dream and their 6th top 10 album in a row, 2018’s explosive Violence, Editors have refused to either stay still or compromise. This is perhaps the key to their longevity. It also no doubt also owes something to a hugely dedicated fanbase, both home and abroad, which sees them regularly performing sold out tours across the UK, Europe and further afield, as well as headlining festivals ahead of many more household names, such as 2018’s Werchter Classic Festival in Belgium, which they headlined and curated with Kraftwerk and The National supporting.

“To still be doing this is something I’m very proud of,” says Smith. “These days longevity might not be seen as cool, but I think it is. We’ve solidified what this new version of the band is, and I think the new songs show that the band are hungry. We’ve always felt like outsiders, but wanted to write songs that connect with people emotionally, and resonate in a deeper way. That can sound pretentious and contrived, but there are people out there that our band mean a lot to. That’s what I always wanted.”

Black Gold is a chance to reflect on the past 15 years, but it also offers a glimpse into a very exciting future for one of the UK’s most enduring and perhaps unexpected musical success stories of this century.
