British psych-rock band TOY are releasing a new album, Clear Shot, on October 26 via Heavenly. Previously they had shared its first two singles "Fast Silver" and "I'm Still Believing," as well as a video for "I'm Still Believing." Now I'm Still Believing" has been remixed by Cavern of Anti-Matter, the trio that's led by Stereolab's co-founder Tim Gane. Listen below via Thump.

TOY issued a statement about the remix: "We really liked the COA-M remix when we heard it and thought it sounded a bit like Electronic. The second half builds in a really great way with the parts subtly taking over from one another; something with always loved in Tim's music."

Gane had this to say: "When I got the offer of a new TOY song to remix I immediately chose the track 'I'm Still Believing.' It's a great pop song and I really love the vocals. I wanted to keep the feel and flow of the song, the catchy melody and synth hook, but I also wanted to change the density and texture of the track; extend it beyond its 3-minute length and take it to some unknown places. Maybe I was expected to do a Krautrock-y kind of mix, but it would have been silly to force that on a wonderful slice of British pop."

Clear Shot is the band's third album, the follow-up to 2013's Join the Dots, and was mixed by Chris Coady. Last year TOY also collaborated with Bat For Lashes (aka Natasha Khan) and producer Dan Carey as SEXWITCH. SEXWITCH's self-titled album featured six covers of songs by artists from different countries, including two songs each from Iran and Morocco and one song each from Thailand and America.
