Jockstrap and Taylor Skye announce new remix album 'I<3UQTINVU'

"I felt very happy making some of this music and live it will be quite the show...”

Jockstrap and Taylor Skye have today announced 'I<3UQTINVU', a fully remixed version of the Mercury Prize shortlisted 2022 album 'I Love You Jennifer B'. 

'I<3UQTINVU' (I Love You Cutie, I Envy You) is set for release on 3 November via Rough Trade Records and its lead single ‘Red Eye’ (feat. IAN STARR) is out now.

The remix record is the brainchild of Skye, who was making multiple versions of the album’s original track listing to stay inspired during the writing of 'I Love You Jennifer B'. The guest features on the remix record range from Ersatz, who inspired Skye to make music many years ago to IAN STARR who he only connected with online a few months ago.

STARR says of the collab: “I love making songs that push the limits of my vocality and energy, and I went all-out in efforts to craft the craziest performance possible on ‘Red Eye’. Whenever I write a song, I always have the live audience in mind; performing this at my first festival with Jockstrap made me feel really great about the result! The crowd’s energy felt amazing & I’m so excited to perform it for everyone who comes to the U.S. tour!”

Skye adds of the full project: “Some of these remixes are almost three years old and some are only six months old. I made most of them really quickly, in a day or so. It keeps me sane to do this whilst mixing the album. I don’t really remember making them. It’s like eating too much and then throwing up and this is what comes out. It’s a weird feeling but also really fun. I felt very happy making some of this music and live it will be quite the show.”
