Massive Attack’s 3D unveils remix of Gang Of Four’s ‘Where the Nightingale Sings’
Massive Attack‘s Robert Del Naja, also known as 3D, has shared a new remix of Gang Of Four’s “Where The Nightingale Sings.” The remix will be released as part of a forthcoming tribute album to the UK post-punk group’s guitarist Andy Gill, who passed away in February 2020.
Featuring English rock duo Nova Twins, 3D’s remix will be included alongside covers of Gang Of Four tracks by the likes of Red Hot Chili Peppers members Flea and John Frusciante, and IDLES on impending tribute album, The Problem Of Leisure: A Celebration Of Andy Gill And Gang Of Four. The record will also encompass a collaboration between Rage Against The Machine and System of a Down band members Tom Morello and Serj Tankian. Founding member 3D relayed sentiments about the remix, stating,
“Gang Of Four were a foundation stone for us, even though we never successfully sampled or covered a single track of theirs. Years later, when we hosted them at Meltdown, I mentioned this fact to Andy after the show and he said: ‘That’s because you’re crap’… Provocative but true. I got the Anthrax beetle tattooed on my back, ‘Love, leisure, work and war.’”
