King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard will release a remix album, Butterfly 3001, through their KGLW record label on January 21. The band shared a pair of singles, “Neu Butterfly” (Peaches Remix) and “Shanghai” (The Scientist Dub).

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard released the 10-track Butterfly 3000 earlier this year. The remix album presents a new song sequencing as well as multiple versions of the same track reimagined by different artists. In addition to Peaches and The Scientists, those who contributed remixes include DJ Shadow, The Flaming Lips, DāM-FunK, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Confidence Man and Terry Tracksuit among others.

“We’ve put off doing a remix album for a long time,” the band’s Joey Walker stated. “Maybe it was conscious, maybe it wasn’t. But it’s happening now. That’s not to say that Butterfly 3000 makes the most sense to remix. It might seem like the obvious one, but it’s not. Yes it’s electronic. But so is a fridge. Have you tried to dance to Butterfly? It’s hard. It ties your shoelaces together. It’s duplicitous in its simplicity. But Butterfly 3001 expands on this. It also deviates and obliterates. We’re honored to have such esteemed people go to work on these songs. We hope you love this album as much as we do. See you in DA CLUB!!!”

Veteran dance producer Peaches shared a statement regarding the Butterfly 3000 title track remix, which was titled “Neu Butterfly 3000”:

“[I] wanted to make this remix sound like a lizard. Slippery wet and scaly dry. Something that wiggles through wide open spaces… with slits for eyeballs…. And danceable.”

Renowned dub reggae producer The Scientist commented on his version of “Shanghai,” stating

“I’ve always enjoyed being able to apply my dub mixing techniques to music outside of the typical ‘reggae mold.’ The music of KGLW, and specifically the song ‘Shanghai,’ provided me with the perfect landscape to be able to create something sonically rich and exciting for the listener. KGLW fans and dub-reggae fans, alike, will enjoy this song very much.”
