The third single to be taken from the album ‘The Problem of Leisure: A Celebration of Andy Gill and Gang of Four,’ is a new interpretation of ‘Paralysed’ by all-female band, Warpaint.
‘The Problem of Leisure’ is set for release on May 28, 2021. It’s a double album of tracks written by Andy Gill and Gang Of Four, all newly reinterpreted and recorded by artists whose own unique contributions to music were enriched by listening to Gang of Four. The album features songs from across Gang Of Four’s 40-plus year career, each individually chosen by the artists who covered them.
Speaking about their involvement in ‘The Problem of Leisure,’ Warpaint’s Jenny Lee, who produced this new version of ‘Paralysed,’ explains: “’The change will do me good.’ (‘Damaged Goods’). Best piece of advice that pretty much changed my life. Not to mention Dave Allen’s bass playing also changed me forever. Made me wanna play bass.”
“It was cool to get inside of ‘Paralysed,’“ she continues, “and for Gang Of Four to give us freedom to freak out in our way… it was a beautiful opportunity and we’re SOOO excited. It’s an honor actually to be a part of Andy’s tribute.”
