Trentemøller Releases New Single, Kicks Off Live Tour In Europe

Danish electronic artist Anders Trentemøller has released the second single, "...Even Though You're With Another Girl" off of his warmly received sophomore album, "Into the Great Wide Yonder," on his own label In My Room. Slated for a September release, the single includes B side remixes by Pantha Du Prince and Kollektiv Turmstrasse, and Trentemøller himself.

While the Trentemøller alternative version fleshes out the initial sound with guitars and instrumentation, Mikael Simpson's remix (included on the very limited 7" edition), which simply allows pianos, strings and tape overdubs to bring out the ethereal beauty in Josephine Philip's (Darkness Falls) vocals.

Alongside the single comes a 12" that features remixes by Kollektiv Turmstrasse and Pantha Du Prince. Kollektiv's half of the record slaps a heavy dose of deep, dark funk into this lo-slung version. Pantha Du Prince's creates a remix based on his trademark twinkling melodies and warmly grooving understated beats, twisting and turning with dubbed out vocals. Each reworking serves to highlight the original song's haunting beauty in its own way.

Watch the surreal, Adam Hashemi-directed video for "...Even Though You're With Another Girl," via Vimeo, which premiered on Pitchfork a few weeks ago.

Trentemøller will kick off a European tour at the end of the month, featuring several live musicians as well as guest appearances by the singers on the album. He will then head to the states in Spring 2011 in support of Into the Great Wide Yonder. Dates to be announced shortly.
