‘Moonlight’ Director Barry Jenkins Remixes Wilco’s ‘Yankee Hotel Foxtrot’: Listen

    Barry Jenkins has remixed the entirety of Wilco’s classic 2001 record Yankee Hotel Foxtrot with the help of Houston-based collective The Chopstars. “Some Americana for the timeline given recent events,” he tweeted when sharing the project on Monday. “#YeehawAgenda is alive and well.” The Moonlight director’s reworking is titled Yankee Purple Foxtrot – listen to it below.

    The filmmaker has put out a number of remix collections in collaboration with The Chopstars, including reworked versions of Grizzly Bear’s Veckatimest and Painted, the Moonlight soundtrack, as well as the OST for Jenkins’ If Beale Street Could Talk.

    In related news, it was recently announced that Jenkins will be directing The Lion King prequel. Last month, Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy released new solo album called Love Is the King.
