Twelve months after the release of Suddenly, which was followed by 12-inch releases featuring remixes by Four Tet and Morgan Geist, Floating Points, and India Jordan and Shanti Celeste, Dan Snaith (aka indie rocker Caribou), shares a brand-new remix of his “Never Come Back.”

The Welsh electronic musician Koreless handled remixing duties, and the song appears on a 12-track digital collection Suddenly Remixes. It arrives March 12.

In addition to the Koreless track, the album also includes three unreleased remixes by Toro y Moi, Jessy Lanza and Prince Nifty.

“Sometimes remixes are commissioned to be marketing tools or to make the music functional in a club,” says Snaith in a press release. “But for me, there’s only one reason to get remixes done [and that’s] because I’m a giddy fan of the remixer. Looking down the tracklisting of this remix album, it’s a thrill to see a list of producers whose music I find so inspiring collected there. Some are established artists, some are just starting out; some I messaged, begging a remix, right after coming across their music for the first time; and some are dear friends whose music I’ve loved for a while—but in every case, I feel very lucky to hear their music and mine connected on this remix album.”

All Caribou live dates are currently being rescheduled for 2021, with dates and details to be announced soon
