Legendary electronic group The KLF have added their iconic 1990 album Chill Out to streaming services, however it’s in somewhat modified form. The album has some of its samples removed, and is re-titled Come Down Dawn. A statement on the band’s website says that it’s a “pre-mix of Chill Out released by The KLF on the 5th of February 1990. Come Down Dawn was released the day before Chill Out, but 31 years later.”
Among the samples that were removed from the album were those of Elvis Presley songs. German fansite KLF Online also points out that the album includes the Virtual Reality Mix from What Time Is Love? (Remodelled and Remixed). Hear The KLF’s Come Down Down below.
