Today's the Day for World Cup Junkie

Text by Nick Lawrence (HigherFrequency)

If you were glued to the television screen during the 2002 World Cup like millions of other football fans then you will remember Junkie XL. His remix of Elvis' 'A Little Less Conversation', taken from his debut album "Radio JXL", was played during nearly every single advertisement break thanks to the marketing people at Nike. Four years on, and coincidentally just in time for Germany 2006, Junkie XL is releasing a new album entitled "Today". Videogame enthusiasts have already heard the title track off the album which is scheduled for an April release, while playing 2005's "Burnout Revenge".

The Dutch producer, also known as Tom Holkenberg, recently re-located from his home in Amsterdam to the urban paradise that is Los Angeles. Junkie is set to confirm a love of his new homeland with an American tour starting with a performance on March 25 at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami this year.

"Today" will be released on Ultra Records on April 18.
