Following the release of The Third Chimpanzee earlier this year, Depeche Mode’s Martin Gore has announced he will release The Third Chimpanzee Remixed on Mute on 20 August 2021, a collection of remixes and reworkings of tracks from his acclaimed release. The Third Chimpanzee Remixed will be released as a Limited Edition double coloured vinyl, CD and digitally.

The second track from the release is a remix of Vervet by techno DJ and fellow Mute artist, Chris Liebing.

“Martin’s The Third Chimpanzee is from out of this world from a sound and production standpoint, that’s even before you mention the music itself,” Leibing said. “Getting asked by Martin, one of the most talented musicians and poets alive, to officially remix one of those tracks… I am still pinching myself.”

The first taste of The Third Chimpanzee Remixed came in February from Brazil’s ANNA, who opens the release with a new mix of Howler – included in recent BBC 6Music and BBC Radio 1 mixes. The special edition also sees remixes from celebrated artists including JakoJako, Jlin, Kangding, Rrose, Wehbba, The Exaltics, MoReVoX and Barker.

Martin says of the release: “I am very excited to have such a talented list of remixers for this project. The mixes are all fantastic.”
