The Clock Opera remix of Marina And The Diamonds’ 2010 breakout single, ‘I Am Not A Robot’, a rare gem from the Neon Gold vaults, is out now. Last week marked exactly ten years since the birth of Neon Gold Records, who took their first steps into the world with the release of Passion Pit’s debut single ‘Sleepyhead’ in September 2008. To mark the occasion, frequent Neon Gold collaborator Young & Sick released a ‘Sleepyhead’ cover. It’s the latest cut off the label’s forthcoming 10th anniversary compilation, NGX: Ten Years of Neon Gold, a unique retrospective compiling rarities, exclusives and covers from the label’s illustrious family tree of artists out September 28 on Neon Gold/Atlantic Records.
Neon Gold Records was founded by Derek Davies and Lizzy Plapinger (MS MR, LPX), and has gone on to release over 50 artists since Passion Pit’s debut: Charli XCX, HAIM, Marina & The Diamonds, Gotye, St. Lucia, The Knocks, Christine And The Queens and many more have all called the label home over the past decade.
Founder of Neon Gold Records, Derek Davies, says, "One of the best things about reaching a milestone like this is taking the opportunity to look back and celebrate all the incredible artists we've been fortunate enough to work with over the years, and we had a lot of fun putting together the NGX compilation, which will feature a number of rare and exclusive tracks from some of our biggest acts, as well as a number of our newer artists covering some of our flagship earlier releases."
Neon Gold is a boutique record label based in New York City and distributed worldwide through Atlantic Records, specializing in the most credible pop music the world has to offer. Since launching in 2008, Neon Gold has discovered and released the debut singles from the likes of Ellie Goulding, Tove Lo, MØ, Gotye, Icona Pop and more.
