Keeping the train rolling along in terms of the RE:GENERATION documentary project, we now have the final three collaborations that will be featured in the film. We've already heard what Skrillex and The Doors had to offer, as well as DJ Premier's work with Nas and the Berklee Symphony Orchestra, and now, we get to hear Pretty Lights take on country music, The Crystal Method take on motown and Mark Ronson take on hip hop and soul.
The first collaboration comes from Pretty Lights, who worked alongside Leann Rimes and Ralph Stanley to do a cover of country classic "Wayfaring Stranger." The second comes from The Crystal Method, who, with the help of Motown legend Martha Reeves and session band The Funk Brothers, gave the motown genre an electronic twist in the song "I'm Not Leaving." The third and final track comes courtesy of the legendary UK producer Mark Ronson, who collaborated with Erykah Badu, Yassin Bey (formerly known as Mos Def), The Meters' Zigaboo Modeliste and the Dap-Kings to create "A La Modeliste," a unique take on the classic sounds of hip hop and soul.
You can listen to all three tracks below, and the RE:GENERATION documentary will debut on YouTube in early 2012 as part of Grammys Week.
