It was then revealed that the track was taken from a new remix album - ‘Reduxer’ - which features new, re-worked versions of tracks from last year’s ‘Relaxer’ LP and includes collaborations with the likes of Danny Brown, Little Simz, Rejjie Snow and more.
The ‘In Cold Blood’ remix now has a new video, starring Pusha T himself, and it’s a trippy video game visual.
“Pusha and alt-J have two completely different styles and coloring them together makes for an interesting sound,” director Osean says of the clip.
“Instead of representing the 2 more so as a person to person, I decided to represent them as more person to experience, or person to land. The way Pusha is acting in the video is the same way I feel he acted in the song. He flows through the song as his experience in someone else’s world trying to find his place. And so in the video during the alt-J part, I wanted Pusha to basically experience alt-J the experience.”
alt-J release ‘Reduxer’ on 28th September and go out on a UK tour later this year.
