“Shipwreck” is the first single release from Modeselektors new album “Monkeytown”.
As a tribute to the traditional single format the song is released as a limited 7inch
(only 1000 copies worldwide) with an exclusive non album B-Side track.
The song was started as an online file exchange between Modeselektor and Thom Yorke
and finished in a collective 2 days studio session in Berlin, just shortly before the album
was sent to the mastering studio.
The B-Side track “Dull Hull” is an experimental rework chopped by Modeselektor
based on a piano scrub and Prophet sound by Thom Yorke.
The “Shipwreck” video by french director Tony T. Datis features the story of a lonely kid in a post apocalyptic world. Everyday is a fight, preparing him to face the night time.
