Following on from the release of her much-loved studio album 'History Of A Feeling' earlier this year, Madi Diaz has now returned to deliver a very special remix for one of the record's standout tracks.
The new rework of 'Crying In Public' comes courtesy for MUNA, and sees the sombre original reimagined for a more club-focused direction.
Speaking about the new remix, Diaz said, “There’s something so ultimate and forgivable about crying in front of strangers that you will never see again. Just letting it fly in the dairy aisle while you’re checking your carton of eggs for cracked ones, letting out a good loud sob in the security line at an airport, screaming in your car at the top of your lungs parked in front of your house, just letting the full heat of violent emotion take the wheel and you’re just riding shotgun. I could not think of a single band better equipped to take ‘Crying In Public’ to the dance floor. MUNA does introspective expression on a whole different level, so it’s a true honor that they took my song and sent it soaring into this expansive emo alternate universe. It’s like I’m crying disco ball tears at the club with everyone I’ve ever loved.”
While MUNA's Naomi McPherson added, “It’s always a lot of fun to be able to take a track like Madi’s that’s a relatively simple arrangement and flip it. The possibilities for a sonic scene change going in are kind of endless. I’m grateful to the very brilliant Madi for letting me do my thing right quick and even more grateful that she’s happy with it.”
