Change (In The House Of Flies) – Tourist Remix
WATCH THE NEW VIDEO FOR “CHANGE (IN THE HOUSE OF FLIES)” (TOURIST REMIX) HERE

Today, Sacramento alt-metal icons Deftones release Black Stallion, a star-studded track-by-track remix of their classic 2000 album, White Pony. Listen HERE. Accompanied with the project is a new video for the Tourist remix of “Change” (In The House of Flies), reimagined by Yhellow. The new remix album is included in White Ponys 20th-anniversary deluxe edition, out now on Warner Records. Featuring dramatic reworkings by The Cure’s Robert Smith, Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda, and DJ Shadow among others, Black Stallion reflects Deftones’ impact across the worlds of metal, hip-hop, indie, and electronic music. White Pony / Black Stallion is available at Deftones.com in three formats: a 2 CD + Digital download available December 11th, Limited Edition Deluxe Box Set (2 Double LP’s + 2 CD’s) available February 26th, and Vinyl Box Set (2 Double LP’s) available April 16th. Pre-order HERE.

Black Stallion opens up unexplored possibilities in White Pony’s vast sonic world. Mike Shinoda transforms the classic “Passenger” – which soundtracks the recent video that debuted at Adult Swim’s 2020 virtual festival. Smith reworks the intricacies of “Teenager” into a gorgeous ballad. And Canadian indie duo Purity Ring remake “Knife Prty” in their own image. Other remixers here include lauded beatsmith Clams Casino, dark-pop favorites Phantogram, IDM experimentalist Squarepusher, electro DJ Trevor Jackson, Grammy-winning future-soul architect Tourist, boundary-pushing rap producer Salva, and noise artist Blanck Mass. Black Stallion grew out of an early idea to have DJ Shadow, (whose Endtroducing LP was on repeat throughout the writing and recording of White Pony) remix the entire album. Shadow is now a vital part of an even broader vision.

While White Pony’s 20th Anniversary Edition is an opportunity for Deftones to reflect on their legacy, the band continues to explore new possibilities for heavy music. In September, they released their ninth album, Ohms, to widespread acclaim, and currently seeing year-end list inclusion across the media landscape from the likes of The La Times, VULTURE, NME, REVOLVER (#1), Metal Hammer (Album Of The Year), The Line Of Best Fit, Consequence of Sound, Kerrang! and more. Ohms entered the UK Chart at number 5 and the US Billboard Top 200 at No. 5, making it Deftones’ fourth Top 5 debut and sixth to make it into the Top 10. Black Stallion is yet another testament to the band’s constant reinvention, one that celebrates their past while moving boldly into the future.
