As you may have guessed from the title 4AD is going to be releasing the Red Hot compilation I reported back in May. If you don’t remember the compilation was being curated by Aaron and Bryce Dessner of the National and will many of today’s best indie musicians. The compilation has been named “Dark Was the Night”. It will be released in February 2009 and will have 32 exclusive songs that will packaged in 2 CDs or 3 LPs. Some of the musicians and acts featured will be: Antony (with Bryce Dessner), Belle and Sebastian’s Stuart Murdoch, Andrew Bird, Blonde Redhead, Bon Iver, The Books with Jose Gonzalez, Bright Eyes, My Brightest Diamond (covering “Feeling Good”, famously interpreted by Nina Simone), Sigur Rós offshoot Riceboy Sleeps, Sufjan Stevens, Feist with Grizzly Bear, Feist with Ben Gibbard, Grizzly Bear by themselves, the Decemberists, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, the National with Nico Muhly, David Byrne and Dirty Projectors, Spoon, the New Pornographers,and TV on the Radio’s David Sitek. I’m really looking forward to listening to some of these songs.
