Bloc Party To Remix Intimacy

Bloc Party announced that a remixed edition of Intimacy will be released on May 11. The original album was ranked #1 on 17 Tracks' Top Albums of 2008 list. This will be Bloc Party's second album to receive the remix treatment. For naysayers questioning the brilliance of remixing a rock album, check Kele's interview with Dummy Magazine this February. He spoke of tearing down musical walls saying, "I guess I want to prove a point that things aren’t black and white, that the boundaries aren’t set in stone, that you can like R’n’B and indie rock, electronic music and metal, that it’s completely possible to be as influenced by Nine Inch Nails and Blur or Destiny’s Child. That’s always what we’ve been about as a band. I guess growing up as a black person into alternative music already you’re on the periphery looking in. You can see how absurd this idea of genre boundaries are when you’re on the outside. Everything we’ve done has been to try and shock that musically."

To promote the album, the Armand Van Helden Remix of "Signs" has been released as Intimacy's fifth single.
