Kat Von D, the multi-hyphenate, has released a Deluxe version of her recently released ‘Exorcisms’ Remix EP, which includes additional reworks.
The expanded EP version features previously released reworks of the haunting single by British synthwave pioneers Gunship, darkwave favourite Cold Cave, French evocative synth-pop purveyors Scratch Massive, and Kraftwerk’s Henning Schmitz aka NEO, as well as a “haunting piano version”, says Kat talking about the never heard before stripped-down version of ‘Exorcism’.
Kat continues, “I wanted to include a haunting acoustic version of Exorcism on this remix album because I loved the dynamic of having a fragile, more melé chol y versión to contrast the handful of powerful electronic versions. I originally wrote Exorcism on piano, so it felt nostalgic to record this sentimental take for my fans to hear a different side of me”.
The release coincides with Kat’s global live stream event ‘The Love Made Me Do It Experience!’, in partnership with Moment House, and follows Kat Von D’s acclaimed synth-driven debut LP, Love Made Me Do It, released on September 30. In addition to the synth-laced lead single, ‘Exorcism’, other darkwave bops released include ‘I Am Nothing’, ‘Enough’, and ‘Fear You’. The LP features collaborations with Dave Grohl, Linda Perry, Dave Sitek (TV On The Radio), Peter Murphy (Bauhaus), Danny Lohner (Nine Inch Nails), Ladyhawke and Charo.
