The Knife have invited Planningtorock to reinterpret 'Full of Fire', from the album 'Shaking The Habitual'. Using the 'Full of Fire' lyric, Planningtorock went about creating a brand new track:
"Going through the tracks I pulled the awesome lyric 'Lets Talk About Gender Baby Lets Talk About You and Me' out from 'Full of Fire' and was completely moved by its groovy directness .. started recording this super fun bass line and totally went for a funky celebration feel"
The video for the single has also been directed by the Berlin based artist.
'Let's Talk About Gender Baby, Let's Talk About You And Me' (Planningtorock Rework) will be released October 14 (15) on Rabid / Brille / Mute Records. On the B side, Hannah Holland presents a new remix of the track,'Raging Lung'.

'A Tooth For An Eye' from The Knife's forthcoming album 'Shaking The Habitual' released on 8/9 April. Available to pre order here: http://theknife.net/shaking-the-habitual
'A Tooth For An Eye' deconstructs images of maleness, power and leadership. Who are the people we trust as our leaders and why? What do we have to learn from those we consider inferior? In a sport setting where one would traditionally consider a group of men as powerful and in charge, an unexpected leader emerges. A child enters and allows the men to let go of their hierarchies, machismo and fear of intimacy, as they follow her into a dance. Their lack of expertise and vulnerability shines through as they perform the choreography. Amateurs and skilled dancers alike express joy and a sense of freedom; There is no prestige in their performance. The child is powerful, tough and sweet all at once, roaring "I'm telling you stories, trust me". There is no shame in her girliness, rather she possesses knowledge that the men lost a long time ago.
