The alt-rock band's 'White Pony' remix album - Black Stallion - is scheduled to be released on December 11 and features DJ Shadow, Clams Casino, Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda and more.
Deftones have unveiled the dreamy remix of ‘Teenager’ by The Cure‘s Robert Smith, taken from their upcoming ‘White Pony’ remix album ‘Black Stallion’.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of their influential third album White Pony, the Sacremento art-metallers will be sharing a remixed version of the record - titled Black Stallion.
The project will feature reimagined takes on tracks from artists like Tourist, Squarepusher and DJ Shadow.
After sharing remixes from Purity Ring and Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda, Deftones have revealed Robert Smith’s atmospheric spin on ‘Teenager’.
Smith previously chose Deftones to perform at his Meltdown Festival in 2018, so the musicians have history together.
Marking a busy year for Deftones, the group dropped their acclaimed ninth album Ohms in the summer of 2020. They were due to embark on a global tour as a result, but the Coronavirus shelved it.
The idea for Black Stallion reportedly dates back to the year 2000 when the band approached DJ Shadow to remix the whole album before it was even recorded.
Deftones’ Black Stallion arrives on streaming services on December 11, before a CD and vinyl release which you can pre-order here.
