    With Deftones' iconic White Pony turning 20 this week, the band held a global Zoom press conference too announce that they'll be reissuing the album with a new companion version called Black Stallion.

    Vocalist Chino Moreno said during the conference:

    “We’re gonna be releasing later in the year a reissue of the record and we’re going to do sort of a split side of the record, a remixed version of it titled ‘Black Stallion‘. So we have a bunch of different people on it, some that actually inspired some of the writing of the record itself, the original album. So it’s kind of come full circle.”

    The new version will see remixes of tracks from various guests, including the legendary DJ Shadow.

    In the conference, it was revealed that the idea for Black Stallion had been around since the creation of White Pony, with turntablist Frank Delgado expressing his initial wishes to work with Shadow:

     

    “We would talk about our new record, how good it was going to be and we’d immediately jump to, ‘It’s going to be so good, we’re going to have Shadow remix it and we’ll call it Black Stallion.’ I think one time we actually hit him up. He was playing here in town and I was opening DJing and me and Chino kind of cornered him.

    We were like, ‘Hey man, we’re the Deftones,’ and he looked at us like we were fucking crazy. We were like, ‘We want you remix our record,’ and he was like, ‘Deftones? Are you guys ska?’ But he was like, ‘Well, send it to me,’ kind of like trying to get rid of us and we were like, ‘Well, we haven’t actually recorded it yet.’ It was kind of batshit crazy of us.”

    Deftones and producer Terry Date also recently gave a fascinating and detailed oral history of White Pony over at The Ringer, which is also well worth reading.

    There are currently no release dates announced yet for either the White Pony reissue or their upcoming new record, although they are currently hoping to see that come out in September.
