Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds have released Robert Smith's remix of Pretty Boy.

The slowed down, spaced-out revamp features an added layer of dreamlike psychedelia and will appear on the deluxe edition of Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds' upcoming album, 'Council Skies', which is scheduled to arrive on June 2 via Sour Mash. Gallagher commented:

"Pretty Boy as it was unfolding became reminiscent of the golden age of The Cure. And it was just one of those crazy ideas that one tends to have in the middle of the night, thinking, 'I wonder if Robert Smith [would] get involved. I wonder if I can get hold of him.

"I asked if he’d get involved and sent him the track and he loved it. He did the remix. And I loved it. I’d never met him before. I’d never conversed with him."

Smith said: "I was surprised and delighted when Noel asked me to remix this gorgeous song, and I had a lot of fun slowing it down and spacing it out. Cure drummer Jason Cooper gave me a great vibey drum track to play along with – and the rest just phased into place under the starry sky of my distant moon…"

The original version of the song featured Johnny Marr and arrived back in the autumn of 2021, serving as the first preview of the follow-up to 2017's 'Who Built The Moon'. The deluxe edition of the new record will be available in triple vinyl and 2CD formats, featuring a BBC Radio 2 session version of Live Forever and a Pet Shop Boys remix.
