Lambchop have shared a reimagined version of ‘The Hustle’, a highlight of their 2016 album ‘FLOTUS’, to coincide with the announcement of an 11-date UK tour.
The trek includes a show at Islington Assembly Hall on 20 August and follows their sold-out show as a part of The Roundhouse’s In The Round series in January.
The re-recorded ‘The Hustle Unlimited’ is the result of a spontaneous collaboration.
“Sometimes things can get out of control, an impromptu idea is presented and you take that idea to a logical conclusion to see where it goes,” explains Lambchop’s Kurt Wagner.
“In this case Tony Crow [piano] came up with a rather ‘Love Unlimited Orchestra’ take on the hustle during a rehearsal with Andy Stack [drums, Wye Oak].
“It seemed nuts at the time but being rather nuts ourselves I thought we should try recording it and taking it all the way to full realisation. Plus it was a great way to capture Andy’s tenure with us in the studio.”
‘The Hustle Unlimited’ and a cover version of Prince’s ‘When You Were Mine’ will be available on a limited edition 12” during the tour.
