Kristeen Young, who you may remember as Morrissey's regular tour opener for many years, has taken "Savior," her collaboration with David Bowie from her Tony Visconti-produced 2003 album Breasticles, and reimagined it as new track "American Landfill." "Toward the end of 2019 I decided it was ridiculous that so few people had heard this song," says Kristeen. "It deserved a real release and a better platform for it."
Working with co-producer and mixer Justin Raisen (who worked on Kim Gordon’s No Home Record), they kept Kristeen and Bowie's vocals but basically everything else is new. What was once glammy pop is now skronky and off-kilter, befitting our current times. Certainly lines like "Did you wake up to find you’re buried semi-alive?" feel more of 2020 than 2003.
