Dirty Projectors have released three new versions “Lose Your Love,” the track is off their their current EP, Flight Tower. The latest version is remixed by Jimmy “The Senator” Douglass. In addition to being the father of Flight Tower lead vocalist and Dirty Projectors keyboardist-percussionist Felicia Douglass, The Senator has worked Aretha Franklin, Grimes, Jay-Z, Led Zeppelin, Missy Elliott, Roxy Music, The Rolling Stones and more. His raw edge and heavy funk bass have become a couple of his many signatures, and on “Lose Your Love” he transforms the track by tapping into the Minneapolis Sound.
A second remix comes courtesy of Mz Poppinz, a protégé of The Senator who turns the song’s super-future soul into smooth disco. The package also includes an acoustic rendition that the band recorded remotely during quarantine, and the original for reference.
As Flight Tower marks the second in a sequence of five EPs that Dirty Projectors will release this year, each sung by a different band member before Maia Friedman, Felicia Douglass, Kristin Slipp, and Dave Longstreth convene together on the fifth.
