Following their attendance at this past weekend’s GRAMMY Awards in support of their nomination for Best Dance/Electronic Album for ‘The Last Goodbye’, musical trailblazers ODESZA (Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight) today release the second remix EP around their critically acclaimed latest album. Listen to the EP here.
Released via Foreign Family Collective/Ninja Tune, ‘The Last Goodbye Remixes N°.2’ EP features the previously dropped Hayden James remix of the source album’s title track, ‘The Last Goodbye (feat. Bettye LaVette)’, and includes additional reworkings by Hot Chip, Joseph Ray, NASAYA, Neil Frances, Nosaj Thing, obli, and Parra for Cuva.
Its release comes ahead of a busy first half of 2023 for ODESZA, which includes headlining slots at US festivals Bonnaroo, Governors Ball, Okeechobee Music Festival, CRSSD Festival, Electric Forest and Canada’s FVDED In The Park.
Looking back, 2022 was a bar-setting year for the Seattle duo, with not only the release of ‘The Last Goodbye’ to critical acclaim, but also the record’s first companion remix EP (‘The Last Goodbye Remixes N°.1’), and the tour. ‘The Last Goodbye Tour’ sold over 450k tickets throughout its amphitheatre run with numerous sold-out, multi-night runs including their hometown of Seattle at the Climate Pledge Arena, LA’s The Forum, and New York’s Forest Hills Stadium and more – making them the first electronic artists to attempt such a tour.
