The Red Hot Organization has been working for a while on a tribute record dedicated to the work of the cellist and composer Arthur Russell, but they're finally gearing up for release - you'll be able to pick up Master Mix: Red Hot + Arthur Russell starting October 21. You can also listen to our first taste of the compilation now, Sufjan Stevens' fragile, percussive take on "A Little Lost," complete with flourishing, massive orchestral touches and huge, edited drums. The cover will figure alongside versions of Russell's songs performed by Robyn, Hot Chip, Blood Orange, Devendra Banhart, Cults, and more. Stay tuned for more; you'll have no trouble putting Sufjan's contribution on repeat in the meantime.
From Red Hot's long in-the-works tribute to the cellist and composer.
