Electronic duo Thievery Corporation will issue a compilation of its remixes, "Versions," in April on its own ESL Music label. The album highlights a number of rare and hard-to-find remixes, including Sarah McLachlan's "Dirty Little Secret, Herb Albert's "Lemon Tree," the Doors' "Strange Days," Nouvelle Vague's "This Is Not a Love Song" and "In Love" from Ben Folds' "Fear of Pop" project.
"These are remixes we've been hired over the years for people, and we wanted to put them together in a collection at some point," group member Eric Hilton tells Billboard.com. "This is at that point. Some of them are quite old. The one we did for Ben Folds is probably six years old."
Thievery Corporation is coming off of its best-selling album, last year's "The Cosmic Game," which has shifted 105,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The set debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Electronic Albums chart.
Hilton says the duo will perform with the Flaming Lips in July at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, with an appearance at Lollapalooza in Chicago to follow. He adds that much of 2006 will be spent recording the follow-up to "The Cosmic Game."
