The Knife will share previously-unreleased material for 20th anniversary

The Swedish duo are releasing live recordings, rare remixes, and a film soundtrack to mark 20 years since their first single

The Swedish electronic duo The Knife are sharing previously-unreleased material to mark 20 years since their debut single came out, on August 14, 2000. The celebration of the anniversary will also see the duo add their catalogue to Bandcamp, alongside the music of members Olof Dreijer and Fever Ray as solo artists.

The newly-shared music will include the live album The Knife: Live At Terminal 5, in both digital and physical form (a live concert film was previously shared in 2017). 

Rare remixes – including “Heartbeats”, “Pass This On”, and “You Take My Breath Away” – are also set to be made available, plus The Knife’s soundtrack to the 2003 Swedish film Hannah Med H.

Having formed in 1999 and released their debut album in 2001, The Knife announced they were splitting up in 2014, telling Dazed: “We will close down, it’s our last tour. We don’t have any obligations to continue.”

Fever Ray’s second solo album, Plunge, has since made Dazed’s top albums of 2017.
