Fever Ray - I'm Not Done (Still Not Done Mix)
15 Jul 2019
Fever Ray today reveals two tracks; ’I’m Not Done (Still Not Done)’, a studio recording and 'I’m Not Done’, a live recording from Fever Ray’s celebrated March 2018 show at London’s Troxy.
‘I’m Not Done (Still Not Done)’ “is a track from the first album in new costume,” says Fever Ray. The original ‘I’m Not Done’ was a statement at the end of Fever Ray’s 2009 self-titled debut and is the basis of this new recording ten years later in 2019. ‘I’m Not Done (Still Not Done)’ signifies the end of another Fever Ray cycle of work but as always, there will be more.
‘I’m Not Done (Still Not Done)’ is based on the live version of the original, performed and recorded live at Fever Ray’s March 2018 show at London’s Troxy. The live version of the song features vocals from Dreijer and collaborators Helena Gutarra and Maryam Nikandish and is taken from “Fever Ray – Live at Troxy,” due for release on 2 August via Rabid Records and etcetc Music.
For the live tour following the release of “Plunge”, Dreijer was adamant about working with as many women or non-binary people as a male-dominated music and live industry would allow. Dreijer invited five other performers to collaborate with them on the production and design of the show. Five out of the six performers involved are around 40 years old, and four of them have children, evidence of Dreijer’s commitment to challenging perceived norms not just around gender, but age, sexuality and motherhood too, all themes found on the album “Plunge”.
“Dreijer cultivated an atmosphere of total transparency: of community, compassion, freedom and empowerment among her predominantly — and defiantly — female performers and crew. In an industry that continually struggles with gender diversity, Dreijer is smashing boundaries, breaking free of the patriarchy and creating an enterprise that is driven by women and individuals not bound by gender.”"Fever Ray - Live At The Troxy" will be released on 2 August.
