Twenty years ago, when the Deftones made their game-changing alt-metal masterpiece White Pony, they fantasized about having DJ Shadow remix the entire album for a companion piece titled Black Stallion. Two decades later, that dream has come true — but maybe even better. Instead of just Shadow, Deftones have enlisted a slew of big-name remixers, from Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda to Canuck electro-pop duo Purity Ring, to reimagine White Pony's classic cuts. Among Black Stallion's many highlights is a dreamy remix of "Teenager" by the Cure's Robert Smith, which hit the internet today (December 3rd) paired with a psychedelic Aaron Hymes-directed music video. Watch and listen above.
Deftones and the Cure have a long history together, of course. The U.K. goth pioneers are foundational influences for Chino Moreno and Co., who notably paid tribute to them on MTV's 2004 Icon special. Smith repaid the favor recently, handpicking Deftones to play the 2018 edition of the arts and music festival Meltdown, which he curated.
The White Pony|Black Stallion 20th anniversary release is due out December 11th.
