Last month iconic British dance duo Underworld (Karl Hyde and Rick Smith) teamed up with Iggy Pop for a 7-minute new song, “Bells & Circles” (which was one of our Songs of the Week). Now the collaborative trio have announced a new four song EP, Teatime Dub Encounters, which includes “Bells & Circles,” and have shared another song from it, “I’ll See Big.” The relaxed track features spoken word vocals from Pop where he talks about friendship. Teatime Dub Encounters is due out July 27 via Caroline International. Listen to “I’ll See Big” below, followed by the EP’s tracklist.

The project came together when Underworld were working on music for the sequel to Trainspotting (2017’s T2 Trainspotting). Both Underworld and Iggy Pop were prominently featured on the iconic soundtrack to the original Trainspotting and so it was thought they could collaborate together. None of the songs made it on the soundtrack, but “I’ll See Big” was inspired by a conversation Pop had with T2 director Danny Boyle about the friendships in the movie.

Underworld released their excellent seventh album, Barbara Barbara, we face a shining future, in 2016 via Astralwerks. Read our 2016 interview with Underworld about the album.

01 “Bells & Circles”
