Jockstrap announce remixed version of Mercury-nominated ‘I Love You Jennifer B’ by Taylor Skye
Jockstrap have announced ‘I<3UQTINVU>
‘I<3UQTINVU>‘I Love You Jennifer B’. The remixed version was masterminded by Skye, who forms one half of the Jockstrap duo alongside Georgia Ellery.
Skye produced a remix for each song on ‘I Love You Jennifer B’ to stay inspired during the album’s creation. “Some of these remixes are almost three years old and some are only six months old,” Skye said in a press statement. “It keeps me sane to do this whilst mixing the album.”
Set for release on November 3, ‘I<3UQTINVU>this year’s Connect Festival.
“I love making songs that push the limits of my vocality and energy,” STARR said. “I went all-out in efforts to craft the craziest performance possible on ‘Red Eye.’” STARR appears on ‘I<3UQTINVU>
Last month Jockstrap were named on the 2023 Mercury Prize shortlist for their work on ‘I Love You Jennifer B’, joining fellow nominees Arctic Monkeys (for ‘The Car’), Loyle Carner (for ‘Hugo’) and Olivia Dean (for ‘Messy’), among others. Ezra Collective ultimately collected the Mercury Prize for their sophomore album ‘Where I’m Meant To Be’.
“It’s been a really good response over the past year,” Ellery told NME on the Mercury Prize red carpet earlier this month. “We’ve been very lucky. Had some great festivals, people singing along. Couldn’t ask for more.”
‘I Love You Jennifer B’ earned a five-star review by NME upon its release last September. “The London duo’s relentless commitment to innovation will thrill newcomers and ardent fans alike,” NME wrote.
