Nicolas Jaar and Weasel Walter have released a remix of the singer and poet Lydia Lunch’s 1990 spoken word piece Why, Why Was I born an American.
Lunch is an American singer, poet, writer, actress and self-empowerment speaker whose career was spawned by the New York No Wave Scene. She rose to prominence in the 80’s and early 90’s for her outspoken and provocative noise music.
Renamed American Invasion, the track will be reissued on vinyl along with the entirety of Lunch’s spoken world album Conspiracy of Women by Jaar’s very own imprint Other People.
Conspiracy of Women:
- i Just Got Back From Los Angeles
- Why, Why Was I Born an American
- American Invasion (Weasel Walter and Nicolas Jaar Remix)
Listen to it here on Other People’s website.
It was just last week that Jaar unveiled his first solo release in four years since his debut album Space is Only Noise. Called Nymphs II, the 12-inch, 15-minute record is comprised of two tracks, The Three Sides of Audrey and Why She’s All Alone and No One is Looking at U.
