Tegan and Sara are evidently proud of their spiky new wave single “Alligator”. This past weekend, they announced on their website that they’ll soon release a remix album featuring 17 different takes on the same song, which has to be some kind of record.
The iTunes-only release (a vinyl version is in the works) is out March 30. It includes reworkings from folks like Passion Pit, Four Tet, TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek, Holy Fuck, Toro y Moi, Diplo’s Mad Decent crew, and Ra Ra Riot, as well as Sara Quin’s own original demo version of the song.
As the duo writes, “If you’ve ever fantasized about having a dance party with 17 versions of the same song… watch out, this is your dream come true.”
