After debuting the video for “The Reeling” two days ago (set to be the first hit single off Manners, which has been highly anticipated by fans and naysayers alike), the Passion Pit camp released this statement:
In other news, the band has launched a remix contest for a still under-wraps track from Manners, offering up stem snippets of ‚”Little Secrets” nearly a full month before the album’s release. The band has asked fans to download the clips, trade with other participating musicians and remixers, and build their own songs around the pieces. Fans will vote for their ten favorites until May 15th. After voting closes, Passion Pit will pick five remixes to be released along with a special vinyl version of ‚”Little Secrets” while the five runners up will receive a copy of the vinyl and a signed CD of Manners.
A serious hat tip to video collective Humble for capturing the dancey glamo-grit these guys represent, in a street meets MoMA installation sort of way, kind of like a Poster Boy dance party. The exact verbal reincarnation of my feelings towards the new PP jams would be ‘smile, jump, flip hair, jump and dance some more’. So take a listen to the snipets here, and take a stab at the remix (just be sure to follow the rules).
Hey Theophilus, I double doggy dare you (a.k.a pretty please!?)
