Nation of Language Release "Across That Fine Line" Remix by Joe Goddard (Hot Chip, The 2 Bears)


Biggest Headline Shows To Date Announced For Brooklyn Steel, LA's Fonda Theatre, Two Nights at Seattle's Crocodile, London's KOKO Next Spring

New Album, Primavera Sound & More Set For 2023



Today, in addition to announcing several of their biggest headline performances to date, Nation of Language have shared a new collaboration with Hot Chip's Joe Goddard. On a remix of "Across That Fine Line," a supercharged standout which the Brooklyn band has brought to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Austin City Limits, Pitchfork Paris and more this year, the British producer, DJ and member of The 2 Bears transforms "a triumphant anthem" (NME) into an unpredictable, thunderous arrangement of synth and percussion. "As someone who works mostly alone, it can be fascinating to hear other artists I admire reframing one of our songs," says Nation of Language's Ian Devaney. "The way they choose certain moments to accentuate takes me back to the writing process when all of these ideas were first stitched together."

Listen to "Across That Fine Line" (Joe Goddard Remix), out now via PIAS: 

Nation of Language also released a stark, seven-minute reimagining of "Across That Fine Line" from Working Men's Club this fall, in addition to standalone single "From The Hill," their first piece of original music since 2021's A Way Forward LP. While "Across That Fine Line" captures the joyous panic of a platonic relationship flipping into something different, "From The Hill" reflects on the times when friendships fall apart over romantic entanglement, further proving why band are "masters of taking the rigid confines of both synth pop and post-punk and expanding them outward, creating emotive, moving pieces in the process" (Consequence of Sound). Backed with an exclusive, vinyl-only track called "Ground Control," a limited-edition 7" of "From The Hill" is out December 9th. Order it here, where fans can also find newly pressed copies of Nation of Language's debut Introduction, Presence LP, named one of the Best Reissues of 2022 by Rough Trade. 

Having wrapped a month-long tour across the EU and UK this past weekend, playing dozens of shows with "cutthroat chemistry" – as Pitchfork described in the top six highlights of its Paris music festival – Nation of Language are now back in the studio finishing their third album. 

With the first of many upcoming shows just added at NYC's Brooklyn Steel, LA's Fonda Theatre, Seattle's The Crocodile and London's KOKO in May and June 2023, as well as the band's Primavera Sound debut in Barcelona and Madrid, Nation of Language will showcase the next LP live for some of the largest audiences they have seen thus far. Tickets to all five of the headline shows announced today will go on-sale at 10am local time this Friday, December 9th, with pre-sales starting today and tomorrow.
