Sam Shepherd has put his own take on 'Never Come Back' and 'Sister'

Floating Points has remixed two recent Caribou tracks.

Out digitally today, Sam Shepherd has delivered his own take on 'Never Come Back' and 'Sister', both of which featured on Dan Snaith's most recent album as Caribou, Suddenly, which came out earlier this year. You can hear the remix of 'Never Come Back' above.

Speaking about the remixes, Snaith says: "At first Sam asked for the parts for 'Sister' – the most intimate and personal track off my album Suddenly – and reworked it using the voices of my mother and my sister that I sampled from an old cassette for my childhood – but having turned that into a hypnotic, meditative beautiful thing, he came back and asked for the parts for 'Never Come Back' and sent me a WhatsApp of him working on the track in his studio with the caption 'Bass drum Making my lights dim!' and turned in a certified banger of a remix."

Also announced today are two Caribou remix 12" records. One contains both Floating Points remixes, while the other features the previously digitally released Four Tet and Morgan Geist remixes of 'Never Come Back'. City Slang will release both remix records on July 31, 2020.
