Bartees Strange - 'Wretched' KeiyaA Remix
Bartees Strange : 'Wretched' KeiyaA Remix
7th November 2022

Today, Bartees Strange shares a new remix from his latest album Farm to Table. Enlisting NYC-based artist KeiyaA for the rework, the track is an exercise in deconstruction as she transforms the alt anthem into a sensual shade of soul and beauty. A rare joy, the mix is both a blissed-out jam in its own right, and a generous interpretation of the original.

The remix arrives in the midst of his headlining North American tour that sees him play 21 shows across the country with support from Pom Pom Squad, Spring Silver, and They Hate Change. Full routing below and you can purchase tickets here. The headlining slots follow his run with The National, Metric, Car Seat Headrest, and Phoebe Bridgers earlier this year.

Released digitally earlier this year, Farm to Table is the second album from Washington D.C. resident Bartees Leon Cox Jr. Where his 2020 debut record Live Forever introduced the experiences and places that shaped Bartees (Flagey Brussels, Mustang Oklahoma), Farm to Table zeros in on the people—specifically his family—and those closest to him on his journey so far. With his career firmly on the ascent, Farm to Table examines Bartees’ constantly shapeshifting relationship with life post-Live Forever. It also speaks to a deeper lore that says, don’t forget where you came from, and this album is why. Always remembering where he came from, across 10 songs Bartees is celebrating the past, moving towards the future and fully appreciating the present.

Bartees Strange is currently on his first-ever headlining North American tour. Full tour dates can be found below and can be purchased at here.
