The Latest Junip Remix Now Available As Free Download


Junip, the Swedish trio led by singer-songwriter José González, has released “Always (Prefuse 73 Remix)”- now available as a free download on Pitchfork. The original track, off of Junip’s latest album, Fields, receives an electric punch that only beat-mixer Prefuse 73 (Guillermo Scott Herren) could give.

With anxious fans waiting for news from the reclusive group, Junip is happy to announce that the trio will be back on tour in North America this spring, playing select cities across the U. S. and Canada, with a full roster of dates to be announced in the coming weeks. In the meantime, check out the latest interview with José and Tobias, talking about their music and recording style backstage in Chicago with Tremble Tremble.

Mute Talks Restructure

After returning to being independent after reaching an agreement with EMI Music, Mute has released details of their new structure. Led by Daniel Miller, Mute will be comprised of the record label, publishing company and a new artist/producer management company. Angie Somerside is returning to Mute as Group MD and will be starting up the new artist management company. The new company has already received new signings, including Junip, Josh T. Pearson and S.C.U.M. Mute’s NY office is currently working with such artists as Moby, Liars, Fever Ray and Paul van Dyk, to name a few. Andrew King continues to take charge of the publishing company and Mute’s NY office will be headed by General Manager, Mark Fotiadis, who will work closely with the UK company in publishing and managment deals.
