Thom Yorke and Beck to appear on JJ Doom reissue

Thom Yorke and Beck will both appear on a new version of JJ Doom's 'Key To The Kuffs' album.

The album originally came out in 2012, but will be re-released as a 'Butter Version' with three new tracks and a host of remixes later this year. Among the remixes are Thom Yorke and Radiohead bandmate Jonny Greenwood's take on 'Retarded Fren', Beck's version of 'Banished' and Beady Eye producer Dave Sitek's re-worked 'Rhymin' Slang'. There will also be a new collaboration with Clams Casino on 'Bookfiend'. The original version of 'Key To The Kuffs' features Damon Albarn and Beth Gibbons of Portishead in guest spots.

Lex Records, which is releasing the album, has confirmed that fans who bought the first version will be able to get the new tracks on vinyl without buying the original again. To support the expanded version there is a new video for the song 'Bookhead'. Scroll down to see the video – which sees Doom debut a new, mirrored mask – now.
