Primal Scream are building anticipation for the three upcoming releases celebrating the 30th anniversary of Screamadelica by sharing a previously unreleased remix of ‘Shine Like Stars’ by the late, great Andrew Weatherall.
As the official press release reads: “The creative connection between Primal Scream and Andrew Weatherall was the kind of once-in-a-lifetime, lightning-in-a-jar moment that can only happen when everything aligns.
Adding: “Blending the band’s raucous rock ‘n’ roll with the producer’s flair for acid house and rave culture created something bigger than the sum of their parts – and something which has cast a huge influence in the three decades that have followed.”
As Bobby Gillespie told The Face back in 1991: “It’s the combination of Andy and ourselves that’s just fucking brilliant. He can take that quintessential element from one of our songs and make it really focused. He’s got vision and inspiration, when these days most producers are just glorified engineers.”
Andrew Weatherall’s ‘Shine Like Stars’ remix is set to feature among a ten disc box set of Screamadelica’s which will be released on September 17th all of which will be pressed on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl. A picture disc of the iconic artwork is also set to be made available.
