Nicole Atkins Releases Stream Of 'Who Killed The Moonlight?' (Eddie Mars Remix) [Listen]

Nicole Atkins is releasing a  brace of remixes to celebrate her forthcoming UK and European tour.

The first is a remix of the sassy 'Who Killed The Moonlight?' and was completed by Eddie Mars. Eddie Mars is a producer and DJ from Brooklyn, NYC. As both a solo artist and one half of a/jus/ted, Mars has produced music for labels such as Southern Fried Records, DFA, Under the Shade, and UNO NYC.

The second remix by Tim Love Lee, founder of Tummy Touch Records and a pioneer of EDM and Trip Trop is for 'Girl You Look Amazing'. 

Having wowed UK audiences in May, Nicole Atkins returns in October for a European tour, which includes 6 UK shows. Feted by Bruce Springsteen, Nicole Atkins' European tour comes on the heels of a series of North American shows supporting Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds and The Avett Brothers.

Nicole Atkins also recently unveiled an animated video  for 'Who Killed The Moonlight?' by the world-renowned Ilinca Hopfner who has worked with Nick Cave  and Grinderman.

'Who Killed The Moonlight?' lyrics were inspired by a dream "In the dream I lived next door to four magical and beautiful Sicilian sisters," Nicole explains. "They were preparing me for a wedding. As the night fell we went to the riverside to toast the new full moon with wine. As we toasted the moon slowly fell from the sky and landed in the river. Slowly flickering off and on like a light and dying. As it died, all the fish died, then the birds, then the air and everything with it. Yet [though] it was sad or scary, it was beautiful."

Nicole Atkins' new album 'Slow Phaser' released on her own label Oh'Mercy! Records/ Thirty Tigers in April, was praised by critics and fans alike. The album features both 'Who Killed The Moonlight?' and previous single 'Girl You Look Amazing' along with 9 other fantastic songs that make up an album Nicole is calling 'neon noir tour de force of hi-def late-night pop'. This album marks Atkins' most ingenious and indelibly modern collection to date. Bittersweet yet life affirming, Slow Phaser is Nicole Atkins at her confident and unpredictable best - spirited, sexy, and determinedly forward thinking

"I wanted to make something that no one's ever heard before," she says, "including myself." Nicole Atkins collaborated with veteran drummer/producer Jim Sclavunos (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, The Cramps, Teenage Jesus & The Jerks), who co-wrote three of the songs and producer Tore Johansson (Franz Ferdinand, The Cardigans) with whom she partnered on her now-classic 2007 debut, Neptune City, and with whom she also co-wrote a few songs. The album was recorded at Johansson's residential studio in Malmo, Sweden and with his able assistance, she devised a compelling, new sonic approach, melding psychedelic energy, prog rock adventurism, after hours disco ambience, and the raw emotional purity of the finest country soul.
