Iceage have announced a new compilation album focusing on the second half of their career. Shake the Feeling: Outtakes & Rarities 2015–2021 arrives September 23 via Mexican Summer and includes 12 non-LP cuts, or “misfit children,” as singer Elias Bender Rønnenfelt described them in press materials. Today, the Danish rock band has shared a music video for the title track. The video was directed by Alex Cantouris and features behind-the-scenes clips of the band, as well as performance footage from last year’s Pitchfork Festival London. Check it out below and scroll down for the cover art and tracklist.
Shake the Feeling includes music made in the stretch of time that yielded Plowing Into the Field of Love (2014), Beyondless (2018), and Iceage’s latest LP, Seek Shelter (2021). The compilation’s title track was written and recorded during sessions for Beyondless, but was left off of that album for being too “happy go lucky,” as Rønnenfelt put it. “We thought this one to be a little too ‘nice’ and well behaved at the time,” he said in a press release. “I didn’t want to learn the song, so I ended up improvising on the final take we did before abandoning it. In hindsight, I find the song to be completely sprawling with an impulsiveness difficult to capture on purpose. It has some of the guitar work I’m personally most proud of.”
The forthcoming compilation also features covers of Bob Dylan’s 1963 cut “I’ll Keep It With Mine,” as well as “My Mule” by Abner Jay. Earlier this year, Iceage shared a new single called “All the Junk on the Outskirts”—another Beyondless outtake that is also included on the compilation. The band is currently touring behind Seek Shelter.
