Boris have released a new holiday single. Titled Noël, the single includes a rework of the Boris track “Pardon?”, by Lauren Auder and Dviance, as well as a heavy shoegaze cover of Wham’s “Last Christmas”—you’ve definitely never heard the song sound like this before.
The group says in a statement, “When Lauren Auder replied to our post and told us ‘I love this album very much,’ we were very excited. We really like Lauren’s voice, atmosphere, music and video work. We replied back that we would like to work together someday soon. ‘New Album’ is an album that has received various criticisms before, however, like Lauren, we also happen to love this album very much. Now, ten years later, we have asked Lauren to sing a new interpretation from it.”
