Massive Attack, Manic Street Preachers Trade Remixes

Massive Attack and the Manic Street Preachers are trading remixes on their new singles.

England's "New Musical Express" reports that the Preachers' "If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next," due out in Britain August 24, sports a remix by Massive Attack. Their version will appear as a B-side for CD2 which also features a David Holmes' remix of the same song.

Manic Street Preachers' singer James Dean Bradfield in turn has remixed Massive Attack's "Inertia Creeps," scheduled for release September 21. This is Bradfield's first project involving another artist's material.

Massive Attack apparently asked Bradfield to do his remix first, and the singer responded by requesting that the band do a remix of his band's song in return.

The last Massive Attack remix single was supplied by Blur.
