This Friday, Brittany Howard of The Alabama Shakes will share Jaime Reworked, a remix album featuring new versions of songs from her 2019 solo album Jamie. She’s assembled quite the roster of talent already: Bon Iver, EarthGang, and Little Dragon have released Jamie remixes, and tracks from Syd, BADBADNOTGOOD, Common, 9th Wonder, Fred again.., and more are all on the way. Today’s remix comes from none other than Childish Gambino, who puts an electro-soul spin on the Grammy-winning song “Stay High.” It’s interesting to see Donald Glover release music as Childish Gambino after insisting that he was retiring the alias after the 2020 album 3.15.20, so who knows what’s happening there. Listen above.

Brittany Howard‘s wonderful 2019 project Jaime is getting a full-length remix treatment. Out digitally on July 23 with a physical edition coming September 24, Jaime Reimagined will sport new versions of the Alabama Shakes’ frontwoman’s songs by artists like Childish Gambino, Syd, 9th Wonder, Common, Laura Mvula, and more. We’ve previously heard covers from EARTHGANG and Bon Iver, and Today you can hear a remix of “Tomorrow” by Toronto jazz trio BADBADNOTGOOD and “Presence,” redone by alt-pop mainstays Little Dragon.
“Making Jaime was so much fun for me because I was able to explore so many different genres of music,” Howard said in a press statement. “There were no rules. This reimagination project has been no different. I have been honored to have so many incredible artists from all musical worlds interpret my songs in such interesting and different ways.”
