Interpol have announced a new collaborations project titled ‘Interpolations’. Set to be released over the coming months, it will see the songs from the band’s most recent album ‘The Other Side of Make-Believe’ reworked by artists including Daniel Avery, Jeff Parker and Jesu. The first installment of the series has been released, with the song ‘Big Shot City’ having been interpreted by American jazz musician Makaya McCraven. The band have also shared a new documentary, filmed by Atiba Jefferson during the recording of the original album. Titled ‘Interpol - Making ‘The Other Side of Make-Believe’, watch the film below. Speaking about the new album, Interpol have said: “We are proud to unveil the ‘Interpolations’ project, a collaborative series wherein 5 talented artists were invited to reimagine tracks from our latest album, ‘The Other Side of Make-Believe’ - and the results are truly inspired.” “From the Latin drum and bass rhythms applied to ‘Big Shot City’ by Makaya McCraven to the esoteric and propulsive soundscape created by Water From Your Eyes for ‘Something Changed’, ‘Interpolations’ is an exotic journey that reframes our songs and joins them to the vision of talented artists we admire.” Catch Interpol at the following live dates: MAY 27: Walton-upon-Trent, Bearded Theory Festival 28: Brighton, Brighton Dome 29: Leeds, O2 Academy 31: Edinburgh, O2 Academy JUNE 1: Bristol, O2 Academy JULY 9: Liverpool, Mountford Hall 10: London, Somerset House
