Low released a new album, Double Negative, last year via Sub Pop. It was our Album of the Week and #4 in our Top 100 Albums of 2018 list. Now they have shared a remix of the album's "Fly" by King Britt. It's dubbed the Fhloston Paradigm Remix is seven and a half minutes long. Listen to it below, followed by Low's upcoming tour dates.

King Britt had this to say about the remix in a press release: "As a longtime Low fan, a huge amount of respect went into the mix. I loved their new sonic direction, which spoke to my Fhloston Paradigm project. My mix was a response and continuation in a way of a magical space they already created. Mimi Parker's vocals were some of her best. A true honor."

When the album was announced they shared videos for three new songs, "Quorum," "Dancing and Blood," and "Fly" (shared as one complete 14-minute piece, a triptych, as well as separately). The songs all made our Songs of the Week list. Then they shared the album's closing track, "Disarray" (which was #2 on our Songs of the Week list). Then NPR streamed the whole album a week early. Then they shared a video for "Rome (Always in the Dark)" (which was #3 on our Songs of the Week list). There was also a video for "Poor Sucker." Then they shared a video for "Always Trying to Work It Out."

Double Negative is the follow-up to 2015's Ones and Sixes. A previous press release described Double Negative as Low's "most brazen, abrasive (and, paradoxically, most empowering) album." Low (Alan Sparhawk, Mimi Parker, and bassist Steve Garrington) recorded the album at Justin Vernon's April Base studio in Eau Claire, Wisconsin (where they recorded Ones and Sixes) with producer B.J. Burton (Bon Iver, Lizzo, James Blake, and Francis and the Lights). The press release said the band "knew they wanted to go further with Burton and his palette of sounds: they wanted to see what someone who is, as Sparhawk puts it, 'a hip-hop guy' could truly do with their music."
