Massive Attack’s 3D remixes Gang Of Four’s Where The Nightingale Sings featuring Nova Twins

Hear Nova Twins guest on 3D’s remix of Gang Of Four’s Where The Nightingale Sings for Andy Gill tribute album The Problem Of Leisure.

Following the release of Serj Tankian and Tom Morellos cover of Natural’s Not In It in January, the next new song from upcoming Andy Gill tribute album The Problem Of Leisure has arrived.

This time, Massive Attack’s Robert 3D’ Del Naja teamed up with Gang Of Four and Nova Twins for Where The Nightingale Sings, with producer 3D explaining: I first met Andy in a hotel bar in Glasgow and gushed drunkenly about the importance of the Entertainment album for an hour. He’d recorded the conversation and played it back through my hotel room door later that night. In fact, the Mezzanine album project was named Damaged Goods until I fell out of the hotel lift and into the minibar. 

Gang Of Four were a foundation stone for us, even though we never successfully sampled or covered a single track of theirs. Years later, when we hosted them at Meltdown I mentioned this fact to Andy after the show and he said, That’s because you’re crap’ – provocative but true. So I got the Anthrax beetle tattooed on my back: Love, leisure, work and war’.”

Nova Twins add: It was such a pleasure working on this remix with Andy in his studio! He was a larger than life character, forever pushing musical boundaries. We love how he explored lyrical concepts, doing so in the most surprising and beautifully poetic ways! We’re grateful to have had the chance to work alongside him and so glad to have been a part of his wonderful, abstract world.”
