NEW MUSIC: Oneohtrix Point Never - “Last Known Image Of A Song”
21 Nov 2018
Oneohtrix Point Never shares Ryuichi Sakamoto rework from album 'AGE OF' ahead of 'Love In The Time Of Lexapro' EP - out Friday!
Today Oneohtrix Point Never shares Ryuichi Sakamoto's rework of "Last Known Image Of A Song" ahead of his new EP, Love In The Time Of Lexapro, out this Friday, November 23rd via Warp Records. Sakamoto's rework takes the hypnotic and complex melody of the original song into an otherworldly realm, a stark and graceful retelling of OPN's Age Of album finale. OPN previously reworked Sakamoto's "andata," the opening song off his 2017 album, async. The Lexapro EP also features title-track "Love In The Time Of Lexapro" which OPN premiered at his 3 sold-out MYRIAD performances at Park Avenue Armory in New York and continues to be a highlight of his live show, as well as another unreleased track from the Age Of sessions, "Thank God I'm A Country Girl" and an acoustic version of Age Of stand-out "Babylon" performed by (Sandy) Alex G and OPN.
Last week OPN announced a pop-up shop in collaboration with Better™ Gift Shop at Dover Street Market's new Los Angeles location, opening this Friday to coincide with the EP release. The pop-up will feature a limited merch line with designs by Harmony Korine and a collaboration between OPN and Jerry Hsu's Sci-Fi Fantasy. A limited, signed white label Lexapro 12-inch will also be sold exclusively at the pop-up while supplies last, in addition to merch, pins, posters and other pieces of ephemera from the OPN world.
The Age Of tour continues with upcoming MYRIAD performances in Australia - Mona Foma festival (January 18, 2019), Art Institute Of Chicago Pitchfork Mid-Winter (February 17, 2019) and The London Roundhouse in (March 8, 2019).
