Swim Deep & Jenny Lee Lindberg pair up for ‘King City’ (jennylee’s version)

Swim Deep will soon tour the UK to celebrate ten years of ‘Where The Heaven Are We’.

Swim Deep and Warpaint bassist Jenny Lee Lindberg have reunited for the remix of ‘King City’. The collaboration comes ahead of Swim Deep’s 10 year anniversary tour of ‘Where The Heaven Are We’. It’s a full circle moment as the song directly references Lindberg in the lyrics: “Fuck your romance / I wanna pretend / That Jenny Lee Lindberg is my girlfriend.” On Instagram, the band said: “10 years after we released king city, in which i expressed my desires to be rich, show off and pretend jenny lee lindberg was my girlfriend… jenny dm’d me and said she digged it. jenny and warpaint were huge influences for us as a band, her basslines, their style, and their influence as one of the baddest and coolest bands about. So i ran with the child-like excitement of her acknowledging us, and asked if she’d like to remix the song, and just like jenny when i was 18 years old, this remix is beyond my wildest dreams. Carlsberg don’t do full circle moments, but if they did…” Jenny Lee herself added: “I had such a lovely time spinning this song into darker territories! I have always been so honoured they chose me to sing about, still kind of shocking! Big love swim deepers and to all who will listen!” Tickets for the tour are still available: MAY 24 - Belfast, Limelight 2 25 - Dublin, Grand Social 30 - Cardiff, Club Ifor Bach 31 - Norwich, The Waterfront JUNE 1 - Nottingham, Rescue Rooms 2 - Bristol, Thekla 4 - Leeds, The Wardrobe 5 - Glasgow, King Tuts Wah Wah Hut 6 - Manchester, Academy 3 7 - Brighton, The Haunt 8 - London, Scala (SOLD OUT) 9 - Birmingham, O2 Institute 2 (SOLD OUT)
