Today, Stereolab announced the release of their latest single The Super It from the upcoming ‘Electrically Possessed’ [Switched On Volume 4], the fourth addition to their Switched On series of compilations. This new volume will be released via Warp Records and Duophonic UHF Disks on 26th February.

The Super It was first released in [1999] on The Underground Is Coming a 7" tour single EP via Duophonic UHF Disks. Speaking about the track, Tim Gane explains: “[It’s] A kind of lost song in a way. Written not for an LP but around the same time as the Brigitte Fontaine “Calimero” 7” (in which, I think, it shares a big similarity) and recorded at the same time as the tracks for the abandoned Charlie's Angels in Space video game (“Fried Monkey Eggs” etc…) although this track was never intended for that project. In our earlier days it would have ended up as a single itself but this was now the LP period of the Groop and so we ended up releasing it as part of a tour single EP. Immaculately recorded by Fulton Dingley, it sounds wonderful and certainly one of the best from the period. Maybe we should have waited a bit and put it on Margerine Eclipse…”
