Julie Baker has announced a new EP.

'Little Oblivions Remixes' will feature reworks of tracks from her latest album, 'Little Oblivions', by Half Waif, Helios, Gordi, Jesu and Thao.

The follow-up to 2017's 'Turn Out the Lights' arrived in February, while the new EP is due for release on September 1.

The first cut to be shared from the new record is electronic composer Helios' take on Bloodshot, which pushes the already electronic-led track into more ethereal and playful territory. Helios said:

 “I was excited when Julien Baker reached out about doing a remix, because I respect her work and it was an interesting challenge to do a remix of singer/songwriter material in the context of my approach which is more in the electronic/ambient world. I wanted to keep the integrity of the original composition, which was great, but also wanted to create enough of a spin to give it a distinctly new quality. My approach to remixes is to use as much of the original material as possible, but to use those elements as a base to create a variety of new textures. So I took a lot of the guitar and percussion elements and ran them through some old tape recorders to give it a rough "handmade" quality, reversed them, chopped them up or manipulated them with reverbs and delays to create ambient soundscapes. I treated Julien's vocals to match the rougher, more lo-fi quality I used with the instrumental elements. Harmonically, I changed up the chord changes to give the vocal melody a slightly new framework and arrangement on which to sit and create some new twists and turns and builds in the composition. It was one of the most fun remixes I've done to date, with such strong original material it gave me a lot to play around with."

'Little Oblivions Remixes' tracklist:

  1. Faith Healer (Half Waif Remix)
  2. Bloodshot (Helios Remix)
  3. Ringside (Gordi Remix)
  4. Favor (Jesu Remix)
  5. Ziptie (Thao Remix)

Baker will support her new album with a UK and Ireland tour in May 2022, which is part of a larger European trek. She has also lined up a North American tour throughout September, October and November this year. Head below for dates and ticket details.
