Elizabeth Fraser Breathes New Life Into Oneohtrix Point Never’s “Tales From the Trash Stratum”
It’s one of four bonus tracks off the composer’s forthcoming limited edition version of his 2020 album.
To celebrate his 2020 album turning a year old, Oneohtrix Point Never is releasing a special edition of Magic Oneohtrix Point Never on its initial release date of October 29. The experimental composer, who’s written scores for the Safdie Brothers’ Uncut Gems and Good Time, is sharing a Blu-ray edition of his last album that features four bonus tracks. The new package, which will be presented in spatial audio, also comes with 16 music videos that span OPN’s entire catalogue.
Of the album’s four bonus tracks, we’ve already heard the rework of “Nothing’s Special” that featured Spanish pop star Rosalía. Today, with the reissue’s announcement, OPN also shared “Tales From the Trash Stratum,” which features vocals from Cocteau Twins’ Elizabeth Fraser. Fraser’s voice coos, chirps, and wails, flickering around a soothing, sometimes playful, background of piano, clashing percussion, and waves of static.
