The Horrors have announced details of a limited edition box set of their album Skying, complete with all videos and singles as well as additional covers, reworkings and remixes. The band have got brought in a healthy set of fresh ears and ideas to the record with Connan Mockasin, Seahawks, Andrew Weatherall, Blanck Mass, Peaking Lights, Cherrystones, Chris Watson, Daniel Avery, JTC and Andy Blake all making an appearance.
Discussing the thought process behind the boxset The Horrors have said:
“We were driving through the deserts of California when we hatched the plan to release a boxed set of the singles from Skying, unaware that it would balloon into the monster that it did. We started off small, just one version per single. However, through chance encounters and wanting to involve more people whose music excited us, the box soon grew into an impressive collection of sonic tapestries and hypnotic grooves and it became apparent that this was no longer about the singles. It was now about this new music which had used the different elements of Skying as a springboard to other ideas. We encouraged everyone involved to be as obtuse as possible, to get as far away from the original source material as they could. The results are stunning, and I think it's just a shame we couldn't have done more.”

The Horrors Higher box set is available digitally on December 3rd followed by a physical release in March 2013.
