To mark the 20th anniversary of their 2000 alt-metal opus, White Pony, Deftones are reissuing the album with a companion disc of remixes titled Black Stallion via Reprise/Warner Records. The collection features an eclectic cast of contributors that reflects White Pony’s far-reaching impact across the worlds of metal, hip-hop, indie, and electronic music. White Pony (20th Anniversary Edition) will arrive on December 11, 2020, with pre-orders available now. Today, Deftones unveil the first taste of Black Stallion, a reimagining of “Knife Prty” by synth-pop mavericks Purity Ring. White Pony / Black Stallion is available to pre-order today at Deftones.com in three formats featuring both the original album and remix albums included. Separate formats comprise of a 2 CD + Digital download, Limited Edition Deluxe Box Set (2 Double LP’s + 2 CD’s), and Vinyl Box Set (2 Double LP’s). Pre order HERE.
Other remixers include icons like Robert Smith of The Cure, DJ Shadow, and Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park alongside genre-bending heavyweights: dark-pop favorites Phantogram, electronic experimentalist Squarepusher, beatsmith Clams Casino, renowned record producer Salva and noise artist Blanck Mass, to name just a few. The seed for Black Stallion was planted back in 2000 while writing and recording White Pony, which ended up going platinum and earning a 2001 Grammy for Best Metal Performance. Inspired by the sound-collage aesthetic of fellow Sacramento-area native Shadow, Deftones initially wanted the Endtroducing…. architect to remix the entirety of White Pony. Though that plan never came to fruition then, 20 years later, Shadow became a lynchpin of the curated collaboration roster that Deftones assembled for Black Stallion. On top of providing a fresh perspective on a classic album, Black Stallion is the ultimate testament to Deftones’ unparalleled genre-blurring influence.
