Cut Copy announce Freeze, Melt Tour in Europe for 2021. You can get your hands on tickets on their website.
After releasing their sixth studio album, ‘Freeze, Melt’ just last month, GRAMMY-nominated, ARIA award-winning Australian electronic act Cut Copy are back today to share the Jacques Lu Cont remix of ‘Like Breaking Glass’, out via Cutters Records/The Orchard. Jacques Lu Cont, AKA English electronic music artist, DJ, and producer Stuart Price is widely known for his work with Madonna, Dua Lipa, The Killers, New Order, Kylie Minogue, Missy Elliott and many more. Bringing his expert touch on this brand new remix for ‘Like Breaking Glass’, the crisp reworking has a pure pop sensibility, that ups the mood with high-end sonics and body-tingling beats.
On the collaboration, Cut Copy frontman Dan Whitford says: “Receiving a remix from Stuart Price (aka Jacques Lu Cont) is something that I probably never thought would happen. In the last fifteen years, his career has taken him outside of our world and into the realm of pop super producers working with multi-million selling artists. But early in his career, his music under the moniker Les Rythmes Digitales, Zoot Woman, and Paper Faces he was a real inspiration. LRD in particular gave me hope of turning tracks I’d made as a no-name bedroom producer with a couple of synths and sampler into something people might want to buy and dance to. The sounds and personality of his music was a real inspiration in an era dominated by generic funky house, and so it’s really such a unique honour to have him approach us to do work on this remix many years later.”
Recently, Cut Copy shared Part 2 of Making of ‘Freeze, Melt’ via their YouTube. Shot by talented filmmaker and friend, Christopher Hill, the video arrives as the second behind the scenes look into the making of Freeze, Melt, uncovering the beginning writing and studio sessions. Bringing those initial studio sessions into the live domain, the band recently announced their first shows in support of the album to come in 2021. Travelling to Porto, Lisbon, Madrid, Valencia, Barcelona, Paris, Amsterdam, London and Dublin, making European fans among the first audiences to catch the latest release on stage in March/April 2021.
Born from a bedroom recording project by Dan Whitford, and expanding to a full-fledged band with guitarist Tim Hoey, drummer Mitchell Scott, and bass player Ben Browning, Cut Copy’s discography has endured the test of time with a knack for simultaneously expanding their sound while refining it. Their renowned live show has graced major U.S TV shows Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel Live, and primetime slots at prestigious festivals Coachella, Ultra, Lollapalooza, Primavera, Pitchfork, Summer Sonic and Big Day Out. Attracting praise both at home and abroad, the beloved act have picked up multiple nominations across a nineteen-year career. 2011’s ARIA chart-topper ‘Zonoscope’ was nominated for Best Dance/Electronic Album of the Year at the Grammy Awards, and awarded Best Dance Release at the ARIA Awards, while 2008’s ‘In Ghost Colours’ received nominations for the ARIA Awards’ Best Dance/Electronic Album and Album of the Year at the J Awards.
Returning with a seamless pairing of electronic music’s finest, today’s remix showcases a fresh Cut Copy perspective with Jacques Lu Cont cleverly bringing out the beloved, floor-filling sounds the band have been known for 19 years and counting.
