Newsflash! – The return of the KLF continues with the appearance of ‘Come Down Dawn’ online today – ‘The album features reinterpretation of the KLF’s 1990 album Chill Out.’ It’s a reboot of the seminal Chill Out album with the copyrighted samples of Elvis and Acker Bilk (and many more) removed from the mix, still sounding good thirty years on from it’s original release.
