Another day, another special edition to report. This time it’s The Knife’s Karin Dreijer Andersson who’s giving her Fever Ray alter ego a sales boost with a double-disc edition of her self-titled solo debut on October 12th. As is seemingly the habit, the reissue will feature a pair of covers – in Karin’s case a highly unlikely reworking of gossamer-voiced folkie Vashti Bunyan’s ‘Here Before’ from 2006′s homely comeback Lookaftering (a Fever Ray live favourite) and a less surprising take on Nick Cave and Anita Lane’s ‘Stranger The Kindness’. It looks like they’ll get tacked onto the end of the original album, while the bonus disc will be a DVD of the strange and startling videos for her previous singles and new one, ‘Seven’.
Speaking of ‘Seven’, it gets a 12″ vinyl and digital release on October 5th, featuring a generous helping of remixes from the likes of CSS and Crookers. The video, directed by Johan Renck (Madonna, Bat For Lashes), should premiere soon.
